in the Studio Theatre






written & directed by HELEN NELDER


A story of domestic abuse. Sarah is an ordinary, middle-class, professional woman - and the victim of an abusive relationship. w@rn is the story of Sarah's experience, following her over a period of five years as she attempts to cope with her increasingly dangerous situation; portraying the impact it has on her children and exploring how it feels for Sarah to be trapped in what should be a place of safety, her own home.

w@rn was devised and first performed at the NVT in 2000 and returns by popular demand. w@rn has developed into a powerful and valued addition to training events and conferences, giving professionals a glimpse of domestic abuse through the eyes of those they are called in to help.
