Like a wandering spirit, the mysterious character of Anne appears in 17 story segments which seem completely disjointed yet thoroughly related. She has no specific physical appearance, image or even facial feature, yet she feels extremely real. Her tragedy lies within the manipulation, debates, exaggeration and suspicions to which she is subjected; whilst being idealised, invented, glorified, investigated, played with, captured, elevated, and treated with apathy…utter and complete apathy.

All that you can imagine of her may in fact be "her". In reality, can you, we and they perhaps all be "her"?! In these extensive searches, we may find "her" in a domain far away yet extremely close to us simultaneously.

Premiered in 1997 in London, Attempts on her Life is the most influential creation yet by contemporary British playwright Martin Crimp. Its groundbreaking approach in scriptwriting and bold discourse on its subject matter triggered intense responses in theatre circles across the world. To date, the play has been translated into 20 languages for performances and research studies. Its gripping narrative style reveals layers of new dramatic tension as the performance progresses, creating powerful emotional impact in every person among the audience.
