  • Overview
    Witness is a duologue between two staff with personal differences that care 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.

    Witness reveals the dark, anarchic world, which attacks the most entrenched conventions of religion, sex, authority and culture, played out in a battle of unflinching cultural supremacy.
