Let the day perish in which I was born
Let the blackness of the night terrify it
Let the stars of its dawn be dark
May it not see the eyelids of the morning
Because it did not shut the door of my mother's womb

CRAVE is a game-changing play that rages against traditional theatrical form, with poetry and rhythm in the driving seat it tears apart our humanity exposing our love, pain and primordial core.

Samantha Jones and Yasmin Williams joined The Other Room’s team in May 2018 as Trainee Director and Trainee Producer respectively, as part of The Other Room's creative development scheme, the Professional Pathways Programme.

CRAVE is Sam and Yas' final project as Trainees and will see them working alongside RWCMD students.
