The Incident at Marshfell
by Michael Punter
Never assume to know....
Directed by Dominique Gerrard
Joanna Flay & Zo Morgan
Thirteen years after a series of shocking and unexplained events shattered the lives of a family living alone on the marshes of East Sussex, two women arrange to meet. One is the daughter of the family and the other, a scientist who seeks to uncover the truth about Marshfell Cottage and the disturbing events that have defined their lives ever since.
But as the evening progresses, an uncanny energy fizzes in the room, interfering with sound and light, memory and reality. Is it the cottage that is haunted? Or is there something much more unknowable that needs their help?
This taut new play from Michael Punter will have you gripped until the very end.
And remember – never assume to know……

After a few years as a radio journalist and presenter, Joanna moved into voiceover, specialising in TV Audio Description and can be heard narrating the AD on programmes across the BBC, ITV, C4, Disney, Netflix and others. She’s also voiced a number of ad campaigns on TV and radio over the years, from her home studio in sunny Sussex, where she lives with her husband and two children. Jo is a relative newcomer to theatre and enjoyed her professional stage debut last year in Michael Punter’s ‘Wax’.
Starting her career at the age of 12, Zo has been blessed to work with some incredible companies ranging from Glyndebourne to the RSC. An avid teacher of the dramatic arts for many years she also produces work with her own theatre company ‘George lassos the moon’ and is a resident performer with ‘The Summer Theatre’ company for the National Trusts ‘Dame Ellen Terry theatre’. She is often also seen behind the camera in a theatre space as apprentice to theatre photographer, Peter Mould. When not on stage she is parenting her 3 children, fussing over her adored cat and dog or gigging with her Rock band ‘Zo and the desperadoes’
