Carmel Greystone In association with Agape Theatre Company presents a play by award winning Director Mark Grey (Holy Hush, Redemption Song, Asylum) Healed.
After sell-out shows at Waterloo East Theatre & The Courtyard Theatre with Asylum, the first play in their restoration trilogy, Agape Theatre Company are pleased to return to the London Fringe with the second play of the trilogy HEALED.
Ophelia, Bridget & Sajmal are now free of the bars and chains that held them captive in asylum, and seek healing and empowerment in order to move on with their lives. Ophelia struggles to find the strength to exorcise the demons of her abusive childhood and seeks healing by confronting her ailing father.
Bridget, who for so long has been a victim of hapless partners and failed relationships has become jaded and cynical. She is in danger of losing the one person that truly loves and cares for her. Sajmal is restricted by the glass ceiling. She has invested so much in learning how to play the corporate game and seeking validation in others that she has lost both her sense of self any real grip on reality.
Healed follows their struggles as they navigate the casualties and survivors of past relationships in an effort to truly break free from the shackles of the Asylum and explore their powerful and newly restored potential. The chains and the bars may have gone but now their fight as they rediscover themselves, is to embrace life, shape their future and be HEALED.
