‘When people can see you, they think they own you...’

Before she was conceived, Isabelle's father attacked her mother, mutilating her face beyond recognition. Eighteen years later, Isabelle has mutilated her own face. In a series of sessions with her psychiatrist, they explore her troubled past and the events that forced her to make her violent decision.

Bandages is a new, experimental Feminist play, with an all-female creative team - an exploration of the catch-22 nature of female beauty standards, where women are persecuted whether deemed attractive or unattractive. It was long-listed for the National Theatre’s New Views competition.


Warning: Contains scenes that some people may find upsetting including scenes of self-harm, implied sexual harassment of a minor and one scene of gore.
