How do women deal with the destruction? How has the Harvey Weinstein scandal affected the women left behind? Not just for those he raped and harassed. what about for his wife? For his daughters? Thinking about this provided inspiration for Liv Warden’s debut play ANOMALY…
It’s 6am. News has just broken that Phillip Preston, media mogul and film-industry powerhouse has been arrested for assaulting his wife. His three daughters, who lead separate lives, are left with the fallout.
As they battle the world’s press, the board members of Preston International and each other, they soon find themselves not only fighting to save the Preston dynasty but to protect everything they know to be true.
In our Kardashian soaked culture of sensationalism, victims’ testimonies are finally being taken seriously and the world is listening. But, this play is not about men like Harvey Weinstein. It’s about how the women in the lives of men like him are affected when the truth is spat out.
Livia Warden‘s ANOMALY is a war cry for the women who have been left to pick up the pieces. The premiere production is directed by Adam Small for Wild Child Productions.
For the Q&A after the 75-minute matinee of ANOMALY on Sunday 13 January 2019, I’ll be joined by the writer, director and members of the cast.
