About the show
Blame culture is in the spotlight in The Secondary Victim at Park Theatre.
North London’s Park Theatre presents the world premiere of new play The Secondary Victim. Opening on 14 November, this timely new piece of writing looks at the pervasive blame culture shaping our relationships with others.
Ali is a successful psychotherapist, well respected in her chosen field of work. Happily married, it seems like everything is going just right. Then, out of nowhere, a former male client files a complaint of sexual misconduct against her.
Suddenly, everything is up in the air. Everyone around Ali doubts her professionalism and her personal credentials. Struggling to prove she has done no wrong, Ali risks losing her career and her marriage. Who exactly, asks The Secondary Victim, is telling the truth?
At a time when being publicly denounced is no longer just something celebrities face from the tabloids, The Secondary Victim probes into our obsession with blame and the consequences it can have.
Matthew Gould directs the production.
Campling’s previous work includes the play Abominations.
