About This Show

U.S. Premiere
By actress and writer Maureen O’Brien
Directed by Weylin Symes

Judith is in prison, on remand, accused of killing her mother. From the moment the police came to question her, she has not spoken. Alex, a child psychiatrist with experience of mutism, is called in as a last resort to make a psychiatric assessment. He battles against her silence until at last he breaks the dam. This woman speaks directly to another human being for perhaps the first time in her life. A relationship is forged, and an extraordinary story is revealed.

The Cutting (Bush Theatre, 1992) was nominated for Best Play (London Fringe Awards) and Best Newcomer (Evening Standard Drama Awards).
