Under My Thumb

umt   

19-21 May 2017

In a dystopian present, five women are imprisoned for crimes against society. Brought together by a common enemy and facing indefinite incarceration, the one dignity remaining to them is their continuing belief in their own innocence. The arrival of yet another prisoner seems no surprise, just another woman brought down by the world outside, but is she all that she seems?

Cassiah Joski-Jethi's UNDER MY THUMB was shortlisted for the inaugural RED Women's Theatre Awards at Greenwich Theatre in 2016, and was selected as the opening production for our new studio space. The production saw the return of CultureClash Theatre to Greenwich, last seen with the award-winning Hannah And Hanna in 2015.

a compelling, meaningful and important piece... raw, gritty and truthful... This is not only a masterpiece but a social triumph

mesmerising... a great inaugural production at a new space that is completely right for Greenwich Theatre... CultureClash – and Joski-Jethi in particular - are worth watching for how they bring new thinking and new challenges to the theatre.

The press on CultureClash Theatre's Hannah And Hanna:

60 minutes of pure action and suspense... Five stars to Greenwich for a brave choice and five stars to Culture Clash.
Female Arts
genuinely very funny... the performers, Cassandra Hercules (Hannah) and Serin Ibrahim (Hanna), are engaging, fresh... Hannah and Hanna reminds us of the importance of our shared humanity and the need for basic decency
Broadway Baby
very moving, often funny... so very important
British Theatre Guide
wonderful... I get the feeling this isn’t all Culture Clash can do ̶ they’re one to keep an eye on for next year
Three Weeks
versatile, emotionally vivid talent
Fest
If CultureClash continue to engage with work as intelligently as they do here, there's a lot to look forward to
