Ink & Curtains presents


Why be the bigger person when you can be the last one standing?

A dinner party with a dark secret. Alex and Laura quickly learn that their friend Mia may not let them all leave alive.

Closure wields dark comedy and vicious catharsis to explore feminine rage, women’s rights, and – more importantly – women’s wrongs.

Created to bring together poetry and theatre, to bridge the classical and the contemporary, Ink and Curtains is a collaboration between Faye Draper and Maz Hedgehog.

both brilliant and disturbing

Ink and Curtain was established in 2021 by duo Maz Hedgehog and Faye Draper.

Their work is steeped in queer feminisms, mixing poetry and theatre to bridge the gap between the classical and contemporary.

Their first production ‘Let Me Count the Ways” was described as having “all the makings of a modern classic”. It is currently touring nationally in association with HER productions, performing in such venues as The Liverpool Royal Court and The Oldham Coliseum.
