Maya Nika Bewley has been cast in the role of Margo in XV Theatre Company’s production of Thread performing at The Hope Theatre, Islington between November and December
Vivian is on the verge of a career defining achievement when a shattering sexual allegation about her famous father, Peter, now suffering with Alzheimer’s disease, threatens to be revealed. Her social media conscious younger sister Margo, is desperate for the truth but, as family secrets slowly begin to reveal themselves, Vivian finds herself caught between loyalty to her family and the new world of #metoo; a world she should be a part of.
As the pressure grows around the family, the threads that bind them begin to tear and pushes the sisters to confront the question – is protecting family, more important than the truth?
THREAD is a female driven play about loyalty, mental health, social media in the age of the #MeToo movement, family ties and the collateral damage of abuse and allegations.
