'Hidden Stories' is a double bill of exciting and empowering new one act plays written by Milton Keynes playwrights, Carly Halse and Rosemary Hill, that look into the stories behind two tragic cases of murder, misogyny and miscarriages of justice.

‘Now You See Me’ is a one woman play written and performed by Carly Halse, which looks into the story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman hanged in 1955. She confessed to the murder of her violent and controlling lover, but what drove her to do it?

‘Darlint Peidi’, written by Rosemary Hill, looks at the hidden story of Edith Thompson who was executed in 1923 for the murder of her husband. It was her lover who killed her husband. Edith was innocent. Was she hanged for adultery?

These plays challenge these women’s convictions, penalties and the failure of the British criminal justice system.

Join us for an intriguing and thought-provoking evening of theatre at Stantonbury Theatre on 23rd June.
