Thank you for your interest in Lela & Co. Please feel free to take a feedback form on your way out…

In the beginning was the mattress. 
Gradually, other little changes – more bolts on the front door; the gun; the locked cupboard.
And she knew in her heart that change was bad.

The story of a young girl trapped in an increasingly tiny world.

Based on a true story.

Royal Court [Off West End]

“Familiar story of sex trafficking is made new, surprising and moving... Powerful. ”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“Shattering... Lynn writes with a kind of reckless abandon... Christian's staging deploys its theatricality brilliantly. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“West plays Lela with a heartbreaking chattiness, pinning us with her open gaze as she leads us into the dark heart of the story.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Fine, harrowing new play... It’s a shattering piece of writing, and West is simply superb. ”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“West is its beating heart. Her singsong delivery may be grating, but her performance is courageously raw. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Suffused with a burning sense of injustice at the ills that originate from male entitlement. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Fable-like, but oddly unmoving account of the abuses suffered by women in times of war. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)
