"By Clare Elton and Lila Palmer

First produced by Anna Pool and Barbican in 2019.

“Catch the spinning tale of what was lost in your misdeed….”."


The mysterious weaver of Cloth Fair spends her days weaving the fabric of the City of London’s rich history, every thread of every life bound together in a magnificent, shimmering, perfect tapestry.


That is, until  Lettice accidentally rips a hole as long as the Thames itself, right through the tapestry’s heart.  Lettice and our audience must complete an epic quest down Cloth Fair and through the churchyard of St Bartholomew the Great, as she attempts to gather the stories of the Londoners who lives she has torn apart.

India, 1947. Six women, 3 Muslim and 3 Hindu, hide inside a coal truck as it speeds through the newly  divided Hindustan. Nothing will prevent Alia getting to West Bengal. she will have revenge for what they have done.

Anusree Roy's play about the shattering upheaval of India's partition is a timely reminder of all that has gone before and an extraordinary opportunity to explore the lives women caught in the cross fire.
