UNDER MY THUMB
In a dystopian present, five women are imprisoned for crimes against society . Brought together by a common enemy and facing indefinite incarceration, the one dignity remaining to them is their continuing belief in their own innocence. The arrival of yet another prisoner seems no surprise, just another woman brought down by the world outside, but is she all that she seems?
Written by Cassiah Joski-Jethi, Under My Thumb was shortlisted for the inaugural RED Women’s Theatre Awards at Greenwich Theatre in 2016, and was selected as the opening production for the venue’s new studio space in September 2016.
UNDER MY THUMB originally ran from 21st September until 2nd October 2016 at Greenwich Theatre. This piece subsequently had a 2017 UK Tour, showing at Greenwich Theatre, The New Diorama Theatre (Incoming Festival 2017), The Warren (Brighton Fringe 2017), before finally running at Assembly Roxy (Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017).
