by Martin Crimp. Directed by Tom Mansfield.

Martin Crimp's Attempts on Her Life is a whirlwind tour of our obsession with identity. In its rapid-fire collision of scenes, a group of characters try to describe the life of an unknown woman, Anne. Is she a victim of violence, or the person who perpetrates it? The girl next door, or a brand of car? Funny, dark and deeply political, Attempts on Her Life is one of the most influential plays of the late twentieth century.
