After the war, he was hanged by the neck until he was dead. That’s what all traitors deserve. This story is about treachery. It starts in 1941, during those terrible days of the Blitz. I have learned to hate all traitors and there is no disease I spit on more than treachery.”-Constance

‘ “Wormholes” by Alison Knight is a surprising and lively piece that acknowledges the very early days of the site on which the Queen Victoria Market stands.  Knight takes us into a haunted underground space or cemetery where the present, in the person of a market worker (Emma Drysdale), meets an amazing theatrical past in the form of egocentric actor (Jonty Reason) and his assistant Scamp (Ruben Francis).  Apparently the ‘great actor’ was killed by a critic!’ Susan Sandow, Stage Whispers.
