little scratch Information

Adapted from Rebecca Watson's "daringly experimental debut" novel (Guardian), little scratch is a fearless and exhilarating account of a woman's consciousness over the course of 24 hours. The charged narrative records in precise detail her impressions of a deceptively ordinary day - the daily commute, office politics and a constant barrage of texts on WhatsApp - and as the day goes on, she gradually starts to unveil the trauma of a rape that is consuming her. Exploring how the human mind internalizes, distracts, and survives the darkest moments, Katie Mitchell brings Miriam Battye's adaptation to compelling life.
