Friend of Dorothy

Written, devised and designed by Verity Johnson

This piece, based on real events, tells the story of a young woman who is kidnapped by deprogrammers whose aim is to convert her to heterosexuality. It combines elements of poetry, physical theatre and dance to explore themes of mother/daughter relationships, isolation and sexual violence.

This video is by no means a finished piece in its own right but is purely to give an idea of what this piece could be with further funding, rehearsal and development. Contains strong language and violence.
