Parents Protecting Children UK is delighted to be the first to announce
that 'DENIAL' by Sir Arnold Wesker will be performed in London in the summer
of 2012 as part of a Wesker Season at the Kings Head in Islington
"Why do the falsely accusing rant and rave whilst the accused rarely show
"Helplessness. How can you prove that you didn't do something?"
"Just as you can't prove there are no witches."
"Or that people aren't abducted by aliens."
Arnold Wesker "Denial". 2000

This play charts the progress of a family through the trauma of allegations
based on the now discredited theory of false memory syndrome. It cleverly shows
the anatomy of this and other types of mistaken allegations and assumptions
concerning family difficulty.
More details will be posted when they become available via the Kings Head Theatre
or via Wesker's own website
Parents Protecting Children UK hopes to organise an event in London to coincide
with the staging of DENIAL - more details to follow
