Martin Crimp’s Attempts on Her Life represents one of the high points of experimental theatre, of any theatre, written in the last quarter-century” Culture Wars

17 scenarios tracing the shape-shifting, elusive figure of Anne. Is she a right-wing American survivalist or a singles holiday host? A victim of ethnic violence or a new car? The saviour of the world or just the girl next door? The company examines Anne’s identity, as much an obsession in the late 20th century as it remains under the persistent scrutiny of our society.
