Enigma Stigma

Morgan Telesis Productions
Target Audience


Enigma Stigma is a stage play that is the story of Thomas Williams, a 20 year old gay man, whose life collapses when he discovers he’s HIV positive. This is a monologue in two parts – written for both Thomas and Shadow – his conscience and fragmented memory – who together remember and experience the raw fear, rejection, and final hope of learning the results of the blood test and navigating life after diagnosis.

Enigma Stigma played to a SOLD OUT audience at OUT! Liverpool in February 2019, before appearing for one night (7 March 2019) at UNITY THEATRE, Liverpool in conjunction with Sahir House as part of the World AIDS Day Monologue programme:

Enigma Stigma Scratch Event

A portion of my new play, Enigma Stigma, was shared at the Liverpool Everyman Scratch Morning on 24 November 2018. This event was organised by the Everyman Theatre New Works department to showcase sample sections of new writing in the North West.

Enigma Stigma is a play that was inspired by Duane K Williams, and the inaugural production featured the outstanding acting talents of Nick Sheedy and Liam Powell-Berry.
