Rattle Snake

  • From £15 (£12.50)

A story with no ending; a chance meeting with one man changes the lives of two women forever. Now they both live trying to predict the unpredictable.

Rattle Snake is an epic tale, based on real life stories of women who have faced and survived coercive controlling domestic abuse.

This sharp, moving and unflinching new play is from the company behind the hugely successful Key Change which won The Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award in 2015 and featuring as a New York Times Critics’ Pick in 2016.

Coinciding with the change in UK law in 2015 making coercive control in relationships a crime, Rattle Snake was originally commissioned by Durham University and Durham Constabulary and funded by Durham PCC and the AHRC and is used in the training of frontline police officers.
