Expertly written

Fresh and innovative 

Poignant and important

Strawberry Starburst was winner of the Highly Commended Award at VAULT Festival 2018.

Research into eating disorders

Research and interviews with professionals and sufferers of eating disorders was vital in ensuring the details, experiences and medical conditions were represented in a highly realistic way. 

Young ambassadors from charity B-eat were interviewed as was an expert in the field of eating disorders Dr Jessica McClelland.

Dr Jessica McClelland, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King's College London:


'Davidovich has taken extraordinary steps to carry out extensive research into the characters of this play [and] put the utmost effort into ensuring the extreme, raw, emotional rollercoaster of experiencing Anorexia Nervosa is accurately portrayed'.

Aimee Bevan as Becca and David Samson as Joshua in Birthright at VAULT Festival 2019.


Joshua is obsessed with shoot em' up games.

Becca's highest priority is always her nails.

On touching down in Tel Aviv they soon find themselves in the middle of a whirlwind of cultures that they don't understand, and as their views change, contort, twist and burst they are driven to explore more than just the soil they stand on, but the depths of their souls.


I’ll admit it, beautiful isn’t it? Shame about the politics.

What politics can you possibly be thinking about when you’re surrounded by all of this?

The politics of whose land this is. I’m slowly starting to see it.
There's not an inch of this place that isn’t submerged in conflict and racial politics and I haven’t even seen anyone get killed yet!


You rarely find such a pleasant comedy that makes you feel so good...a great show for any occasion.


Birthright had it's premiere at VAULT Festival 2019

where it was well received by critics and audiences.

RAT KING was shown for five nights at The Hope Theatre in October 2021, in a paired-down development production. It was well-received by audiences, press, and industry, with this short run being valuable in preparing the ground for a full production in the future.

Running and running

my lungs are burning

I'm coughing and spluttering

we get to a house that's old and crumbling

and it's not on any main streets,

half of it backs onto wastelands

the other half is attached to an old factory.

He goes through a door with no hinges.

Kelly wants change.

School is boring and the medication she takes looks like tic tac’s and tastes like crap.

The more her parents worry, the more suffocated she feels living under their roof.

The world is a big place that she’s desperate to explore, so she's preparing to run away.

Jack is living on the streets, life's hard for a homeless youth like him but he's surviving.

As Kelly takes her first steps towards freedom she lands herself in trouble.

Jacko comes to her rescue and they are catapulted into a journey that will change their lives forever.



Success! Message received.
