About

Journalist and Gal Dem’s Lifestyle Editor Niellah Arboine tracks the journey of a woman searching for a safe space in the opinionated noise of the internet in this short film.

Safe is part of Tools for Change: digital reimaginings of three plays from the Theatre Uncut archive that explore racism, censorship, power and identity.

Tools For Change was created to offer creative material to encourage debate, galvanize action and raise debate on racism and injustice. The playtexts of all three plays are available on Theatre Uncut's website for anyone anywhere to download free of charge and perform themselves until 28th November 2020.

Originally commissioned as part of The Power Plays produced by Theatre Uncut in 2018.

The Traverse is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, with additional support from The Scottish Government Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund.

With thanks for the generous support of Joanna Kennedy.
