Dreams Of Violence is a new comedy about love, death and responsibility by Stella Feehily and directed by Max Stafford-Clark.
For Hildy, political activism comes easier than dealing with the disorder of her family life: her druggie son; her philandering husband; her father, misbehaving in a hugely expensive retirement home. And then there is her mother, a charismatic 60s pop star who clings to her former beauty (and a bottle of vodka), and who sets up camp in Hildy’s spare room to belittle her from close range.
By day, Hildy leads the city’s cleaners in revolt against the bankers, but by night she dreams of violence.
Dream Of Violence playwright Feehily’s previous credits include O Go My Man and Duck.
