To premiere on the 16th of July, "Cell" is a darkly humorous new play examining the impact of ageing on Julian's theological vision, with an immersive medieval soundscape recreating what Julian may have heard from her anchoritic cell. A Q&A will follow the performance. Cindy Oswin is a writer/actor/director working in theatre with a special interest in archive material leading to performance.
