Success demands sacrifice. So does Svengali. Gripping, intimate monologue exposing the dark heart of a dynamic of power, desire, and control. A promising young woman rises to supernatural heights on the tennis circuit under the hypnotic thrall of a master coach. Mentor and protégé battle for dominance – on the courts and off. Channels sports stories and 1980s erotic thrillers to reimagine a classic character for the #MeToo era. Performed by Chloe-Ann Tylor. Created by Scottish playwright and director Eve Nicol. Selected for the Edinburgh National Partnerships Programme. 'Raw, hugely evocative' **** (Scotsman). 'Strange, soulful' **** (Skinny).
