Lion in the Streets by Judith Thompson

Director Hanna Berrigan

Designer Emily Megson

Lighting Designer Michael Clay

Sound Designer Will Black


In a North American city, the ghost of a 9 year old Portuguese girl hunts her killer. Her wanderings bring her into contact with a vibrant, disturbing and frequently extremely funny collection of characters: she is visible to some, invisible to others; some show her kindness, others brutality. A rich portrait of the private tragedies and public absurdities of life in a modern city, Lion in the Streets premiered in Britain at the Hampstead Theatre in 1993 with Shirley Henderson as the 9 year old Isobel.
