    Written in 1997, Martin Crimp’s lurid, shocking and at times hilarious skewering of the traditional ‘play’ dives headlong into a deep pool of modern preoccupations: pornography, violence, sex, death, art, the media and more. 

    Riven with anger and passion, Crimp conjures 17 stirring fragments of loosely interconnected story, that offer up several different perspectives on the life of ‘Anne’, our amorphous, shape-shifting protagonist and her struggle – perhaps our struggle – to carve out her own identity in the modern world.

    Having been translated into 20 different languages and performed worldwide, Attempts on Her Life is considered a modern masterpiece, a landmark text that tears up the theatrical rulebook and sets fire to the scraps. Directed by Kalungi Ssebandeke, Attempts on Her Life is performed by graduating students of Bristol School of Acting.
