Part costume drama, part queer love story, part tragicomedy: ‘Crypthand‘ is inspired by the 19th century coded diaries of Anne Lister. Written by Lily Falk and directed by Laura Vingoe-Cram, this award winning script follows two young girls at boarding school, one raised in England, the other in south India, who find freedom and belonging with each other while the wider world closes in. Three actors take on this vibrant and dense universe playing schoolgirls, religious sisters, characters from Greek mythology, and town councilors. The play is underscored with string arrangements by GaRRy Williams and performed by Alexa Kirste.
