A woman in a green dress stands in the middle of a green landscape, surrounded by trees. Her arms wave in the air above her as she appears to sway. The images is blurred and slightly distorted.

THE WOMAN WHO TURNED INTO A TREE

PRESENTED BY Omnibus Theatre and Collide Theatre
A world premiere from Lisa Langseth (Netflix) about isolation, identity and destructive obsession with the opinions of others.

“I want to scream. I need an entirely new life because the old one isn’t working, there’s a war going on inside me and I need to rally the forces.” 

Daphne is desperate to re-invent herself. Class, looks, money, men. 

Daphne is a young woman living in a world governed by toxic masculinity and scrupulous judgement. With no support network, plummeting mental health and growing paranoia, Daphne gradually loses touch with reality.  

The Woman Who Turned into a Tree is a world premiere from writer Lisa Langseth (Love & Anarchy, Netflix) and director Emily Louizou. Fusing original music with live sound and movement, this new play inspired by the Daphne myth is a timely tale about isolation, identity and destructive obsession with the opinions of others.

The UK version of The Woman Who Turned Into A Tree was first commissioned and presented as part of New Nordics Festival by Cut the Cord Theatre in October 2021.
