Scene Change Productions

A world premiere – heroine is based on the true story of Danna Davis, and her 10 years in the US Army.

A survivor of military sexual trauma, hers is a human story exploring healing, forgiveness and what speaking your truth really means – with grit, lyricism and necessary black humour.

heroine is performed by Mary Jane Wells, and directed by Susan Worsfold.

Note: Contains triggers, strong language and graphic content.

“An impressive performance… a compelling story of resilience and survival… tremendous” The Scotsman
“Mesmerising… powerful, visceral theatre that is not easily forgotten” The Fountain
“Hilarious and chilling… fascinating and gloriously entertaining – even as it bites hard” All Edinburgh Theatre
