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.
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?
