A new play by Philip Hawthorne, Witness is a duologue between two staff with personal differences caring for the disabled.
The story begins when an assistant care home manageress is due to take the house residents to a New Year’s Eve party with a newly appointed member of staff, Eliot.
Cultural differences start to appear when attitudes over sex, religion and marriage are seen differently. In order to regain her control, Mariam, subverts house protocol to re-establish her authority by setting Eliot up in a dispute.
Mariam is played by Françoise Pascal, noted from TV’s ‘Mind Your Language’, and introducing Peter York playing the character of Eliot.
