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 movemen t, this new play inspired by the Daphne myth is a timely tale about isolation, identity and destructive obsession with the opinions of others. 

Writer: Lisa Langseth
