What do you do when your daughter won’t eat?

Daniel’s away, Robert doesn’t have a clue and Molly’s not sure if she can
hold it together. Cecilia looks at a family on the edge and asks if we can ever
really understand the people we love.

Cecilia was initially developed with Sharon Clark at the Bristol Old Vic and underwent further development at the North Wall Centre. It was produced for a short run during Festival 45 at the Kings Head where it sold out and received four star reviews.

“Cecilia is a taut, powerful, upsetting and deeply human exploration of a family, the limits of love, the depths of people… An intricate and impressive piece of work from Zoe Hunter Gordon"
