At Hull Truck Theatre: BUY TICKETS

A theatre director’s latest project takes on a life of its own when her young star takes her performance too seriously.

MADELINE’S MADELINE | Josephine Decker | 2018 | USA | Cert 15 | 93 mins


Madeline has become an integral part of a prestigious physical theatre troupe. When the workshop’s ambitious director pushes the teenager to weave her rich interior world and troubled history with her mother into their collective art, the lines between performance and reality begin to blur. The resulting battle between imagination and appropriation rips out of the rehearsal space and through all three women’s lives.

Starring Helena Howard, Molly Parker, Miranda July
