The Lost  Children 

Eve McDougall was incarcerated in Scotland’s toughest adult prison for 2yrs at the age of 15yrs old for trying to steal a roll of bread, Christmas 1972. Later in life Eve wrote her biography, ‘A Wicked Fist’. 

The Lost Children is a monologue of her first night in jail a traumatic experience which no child should go through for such a petty crime. Eve is not a victim she is a survivor who supports vulnerable people.

Mata Hari 

Co-written by award-winning writer Dean Stalham and MA Graduate in Intercultural  Cabaret from St Martins Aletia Upstairs. Mata Hari is an original play with songs and music interspersed with verbatim words taken from letters and interviews, with songs performed in English, French, Dutch and German. 1917 – Imprisoned, accused of espionage during WWI, her final hours, awaiting death by French firing squad, we see a roller coaster reflection of her life.

singing.” ✭✭✭✭ Theatre Guide London
