'fearless direction'  'shows real promise' - The Stage

'The premise for this story of public demonisation and the impossibility of rehabilitation for women like Evelyn is an excellent one ' - The Guardian

"An insightful social commentary and a delicious piece of theatre"
- The Reviews Hub

"Has you questioning everything and wondering whether you can trust your own eyes"
- Theatre Weekly

Evelyn was a co-production between Wildcard Theatre and Mercury Theatre Colchester as part of their 'Made in Colchester' series. It was due to run for 10 performances at Mercury (interrupted by Covid 19) and 4 weeks in the Large at Southwark Playhouse (also interrupted by Covid 19). 

There are a few things that we know about Evelyn: we know what she did, we know that we hate her, and we know that she's still out there. Somewhere. She's just not Evelyn anymore. She could be anyone.

Even you.

Britain is on the hunt, it has been for years. Walton is on high alert... and Sandra's just arrived.

Inspired by real life events, Evelyn is a story of mob-justice in modern day Britain that interrogates the question: when is justice really served?
