Lela & Co.
The story of a young girl trapped in an increasingly tiny world.
In the beginning was the mattress. Gradually, other little changes – more bolts on the front door; the gun; the locked cupboard. And she knew in her heart that change was bad.
Based on a true story, Cordelia Lynn's play Lela & Co. premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in September 2015.
‘As for what came next, things unspoken and untold until now, it happened like this…’
'one of the most powerful 90 minutes I’ve spent in a theatre... An extraordinary Royal Court debut'The Times
'one of the most powerful plays I've ever seen... a brilliant piece of new writing'The Arts Desk
'shattering... Lynn writes with a kind of reckless abandon... You have to force yourself to listen to [Lela] – and, god knows, it's about time we did'WhatsOnStage
