Written and performed by Hannah Moss, Everything I Didn’t Say is a one-woman theatre piece exploring non-violent domestic abuse and coercive control.

A one-woman theatre piece exploring non-violent domestic abuse and coercive control.

Described as a “subtle sucker-punch of a show” by The List, Everything I Didn’t Say seeks to disrupt the societal narrative towards domestic abuse. The show explores the effect of abuse and coercive control on the victim, and the friends and family around them. It also seeks to change perceptions of what coercive control is and also what a victim can look like.

Described as “moving, intimate and expertly performed”, the show premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019. The show follows the lead character, Meadow Rain, as she tries to make contact with her closest pal, after leaving an abusive relationship. With an emphasis on the manipulation, isolation and anxiety a victim can experience, the show shines a light on the darkness of non-violent domestic abuse. With intelligent use of flashbacks, audience interaction and movement, Everything I Didn’t Say highlights the experience of being in an abusive relationship and also the effect of the abuse on the victim’s wider community.

It seeks to change perceptions of what coercive control is and also what a victim can look like.

Devising and creating new performance works that seek to challenge dominant narratives in society, Everything I Didn’t Say is created by On The Run Theatre Company. In addition to domestic abuse, the company have also tackled subjects like grief and bereavement, and the experiences of being a carer, through theatre and performance. Using a blend of movement, comedy, audience participation and visual theatre, their performances are borne out of a blend of autobiographical experience and research.

The show has been made with support from Shoreditch Town Hall, Blue Elephant Theatre and UK SAYS NO MORE, a campaign to raise awareness of domestic abuse and sexual violence across the UK.

Catch this powerful performance in The Lowry studio for one performance this May.
