Written by Sheila and directed by Lucy Atkinson (Vault Festival and Trafalgar Studios A Hundred Words For Snow), Anguis is set in a broadcast recording studio where an interview exploring alternatives to popular truth takes place between two women, the great pharaoh Cleopatra and contemporary virologist, Kate. The conversation unpacks the common myth of Cleopatra’s “death by asp”, and as they explore Cleo’s story, the reality of Kate’s own past is also called into question.

Told through a blend of theatre and original music, the play will explore the complexities of womanhood and our shared responsibility to seek out the truth. Produced by Avalon and BBC Arts.
