CallBack is delighted to announce their new play: ”JANEY DILLIS”, written by John Sheehy & performed by Cora Fenton.
Welcome to the world of Janey Dillis. Janey hasn’t left her house in 25 years.

As her situation escalates, Janey is forced to question her way of life and deals with her predicament through her wild imagination. She is prone to fantastical flights of fantasy that reveal much of her inner self and the wider world that has caused her to become trapped.
