About Heroine

HEROINE
MARY JANE WELLS & SCOTTISH THEATRE PRODUCERS
By Mary Jane Wells

Based on the true story of US soldier Danna Davis.

A survivor of military sexual trauma, hers is a human story exploring healing, forgiveness and what speaking your truth really means - with grit, lyricism and necessary black humour.

On a dangerous mission inside a combat zone, Sgt Davis must work with the perpetrator of her sexual attack to get her squad home safely. Will peace ever be possible?

Each performance will be followed by a discussion with a curated panel of military, legal and survivor advocate experts.

This show is taking part in our £1 Tickets project.

Contains loud noises, graphic language and depictions of sexual violence which may be upsetting for some audiences. Strictly no latecomers.

Age 18+

Supported by Creative Scotland.
