“Everyone stop what you’re doing. And watch this. Now.”

In the midst of unrest in a country far from this one, a woman lies dead in the street – the yellow dress she wears sparking the flame of revolution. Everything is going to change. Everyone will be affected.

This taut political thriller of a play, laced with contemporary urgency, is performed by Mountview’s Musical Theatre students in a propulsive and exciting new production.

Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes, no interval

Image of an Unknown Young Woman features haze, strobe lighting, sudden loud noises, strong language, violence, blood and themes of war, death, kidnap, torture and sexual assault. 

An amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
