What's Behind the Green Door?

Dead women. Dead children. That's what's behind the green door...and the red, and the blue, and the brown and the yellow.  Domestic abuse does not discriminate.

Before covid-19, two women in the UK died every single week at the hands of their current or former partner. During the first three weeks of lockdown there were at least 16 killings, including children, and calls to domestic abuse helplines went through the roof. 

I survived my experience of domestic abuse, just. I wrote Green Door, the true story of my life with an abuser, and was performing it in theatres until the virus shut them all down.

My dream is to take my story into schools, colleges and universities to promote conversations, raise awareness and help at least some of the next generation to avoid the pitfalls that beset me, and almost ended my life.

In May, I streamed Green Door online and now, as the world slowly re-opens, I want to  re-record my story in a studio environment to produce a top quality film to use as an awareness raiser for the whole of society. 

To do this I need to be able to pay all the creatives, without whom this dream would be a non-starter. Producer, director, camera operators and editor. A workshop, that will go along with the video, and which I will present in person, is being written in collaboration with experts and I need to pay them too.

My story, Green Door, was funded by Arts Council England for three performances earlier this year, but Covid19 has now wiped out many of the usual funding streams. 

Here is a short video we made before lockdown in which I tell you exactly why this story has to be told.


Will you help me to take my knowledge to the next generation?
