Part of ShoutOut Festival 2019

Presented by The Midnight Florists

In the Littlewood Theatre

I wanted my friends to be fucked like I...
like I wanted one of them to be like abused. 
I wanted one of them to... 
I just wanted one of them to feel how I feel.

The Midnight Florists present an invocation, a reperformance of survival, an examination not of the act but the consequence, not the fall but the rise. A gathering of voices that speak out through surrogate mouths, drowning in the sound of the silence of fear.

Collating together over twenty hours of verbatim recordings gifted by survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. Lord Knows... (This Won’t Be the Last Time) tells in their own words the very real stories of “Alex” and “Sarah” who were assaulted in the same month of the New York Times article into an abusive Hollywood movie producer.  It chronicles their recovery in their own words, through each stutter, retraction, correction and mistake. Supported by music, dance, multimedia, and broadcast this performance redirects the #MeToo narrative from the abuse to the slow and necessary recovery.

Supported by Bootworks Theatre, Rachael Clerke, The University of Chichester, and Tsinder Ash. 

Developed as #Progression Resident Company at The Greenwich and Lewisham Young Peoples Theatre
