Pollyanna Esse


Bedlam Theatre

This original verbatim piece takes you through one of the most controversial sexual assault cases in America. Each and every word spoken is as said in the original court case.

’20 Minutes of Action’ is not only a production which addresses the hard-hitting topic of sexual assault, which is so often overlooked, but is also a platform for awareness of the victim’s own individual struggle, as she comes to terms with both the events of the assault itself, whilst faced with the failure of the court to rule justice for her assault. *All names, the date and other details have had to been changed in this production for legal reasons. However, all statements remain purely verbatim.
