Schism, by lauded playwright and activist Athena Stevens, is a stunning new play about two people finding each other.

“I never wanted to change, in case you didn’t like it.”

Failed architect Harrison had plans to end his life. The last thing he needed was Katherine, a young student with cerebral palsy, breaking into his house begging for his help…

As their chaotic first encounter turns into the beginning of a twenty year relationship, the unlikely couple grow to realise that they are capable of either building something great together – or absolutely destroying each other.

Following the journey of Harrison and Katherine, Schism questions at what point does a dream become unrealistic and out of date.

Schism is written and co-performed by Athena Stevens, an acclaimed playwright who herself has a disability. Her previous plays include The Amazing Vancetti Sisters (Tristan Bates Theatre), Detours Ahead (Victory Gardens Theatre, Chicago) and two online series – Assistive Devices and Vote Z.

Schism received its world premiere at the Finborough Theatre in April 2016, and is now receiving a long-awaited transfer to London’s Park Theatre.
