Assault With A Deadly Weapon

Jermyn Street Theatre
As part of the 'Footprints Festival'

"It's all about information.

You can have a picture of someone and the information/ the data/ and you already know what they’d say, enough to have lost conversations when they’re as far away as another human being can be."


Assault With A Deadly Weapon is a short play that explores issues of data privacy and isolation; in a time where technology should bring us closer together. In this digital space we meet Bella, a hotline operator; her manager Marcus; and her naive but strong-willed customer Danni.

Assault With A Deadly Weapon premiered with Opsis Theatre Company on YouTube on the 20th February, 2021 as a digital theatre production.​

The live theatre debut of Assault With A Deadly Weapon took place on the 2nd June at Jermyn Street Theatre as part of the work-in-progress evening, 'Push & Pull', for their Footprints Festival. A live recording of this can be provided upon request.
