“You’re going to use the truth to make people care; you’re going to use words to bring people together; and you’re going to give people the courage to fight back.”
After years in the shadows, Alina and Vincent can stay silent no longer. But when personal beliefs have political consequences, fighting the good fight is not as straightforward as it seems.
Jo Sutherland's tense political thriller asks what we believe in and what we’d risk to stand up for those beliefs.
V+15 will premier at VAULT Festival 2020, running from 26th February - 1st March in the Cavern Space.
We are proud to support the work of PEN International with this production. PEN International is a worldwide association of writers, founded in London in 1921 to promote literature and intellectual co-operation among writers everywhere.

"Sutherland's writing is philosophical, political and faced-paced with twists and turns at every corner." The Play's The Thing
"I enjoyed the intensity of the two actors [...] their relationship was powerfully and clearly developed." The Stars Shine Still
"The play is directed with conviction and flair by Sara Reimers." Lou Reviews
"The sound design and the lighting (Neil McKeown, Perttu Lähdesmäki) add to the eerie feel of the play, and make the dramatic twists of the show all the more frighening!" Within Her Words
