Raw! is the new literary sensation from first time author Abigail Rose; an autobiography where she claims to unflinchingly scrutinise a life in search of true meaning. A work, she claims, of absolute and utter honesty.
But at least one person is not buying it.
In the age of “false news” the script explores the idea of personal identity; how do we come to believe who we are and how far will we go to to preserve it. An Assumption of Truth is a psychological drama about the complex relationship between our idea of ourselves and our need for narrative.
Keir McAllister’s new play is a step away from the comedic led pieces he is known for and into new territory with this highly topical thriller.
Featuring an all female cast including critically acclaimed actresses Shauna Macdonald (Filth, The Descent and Spooks) and Joanna Tope (A Respectable Widow Takes To Vulgarity, The Crucible and Threads) alongside up and coming actress Larah Bross (The Last Laugh).
Directed by Cal MacAninch (The Awakening, Downton Abbey and Judas Kiss)
This production was part funded by the Tom McGrath Trust
