Writer Statement

 

This is a project looking at PTSD, and how the untreated issues can harm those dealing with the symptoms. There are also elements that highlight the current topical issues of the societal mistreatment of women in patriarchal Britain today.
I hope to create a gripping parable that can be appreciated for its narrative alone or enjoyed when the subtext is explored.
