“WAY is a play driven by passion and shaped by theatrical skill… An astonishing sustained theatre performance… If you love theatre, see this” Stage Whispers

Written and performed by Sally McKenzie, directed by Sean Mee, with sound design by J. David Franzke, WAY fuses filmed sequences and live performance to interweave the fictional journey of documentary-maker Lynne with the lived experiences of the women in her film. There’s Julie who lives on the streets, Maysie who sleeps in her car, Lily of no fixed address, and Zahra who resides in a women’s refuge.
