Zones of Avoidance’ is an award-winning live literature production which explores a mother’s quest to understand her daughter’s descent into addiction. At the heart of the story is ‘Sunny Girl’ whose substance misuse triggers schizophrenia with devastating consequences.

Written and performed by Maggie Sawkins, Zones of Avoidance won the 2013 Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry.

'Beautifully written and uncompromising, Zones of Avoidance acts as a vivid witness of harsh experiences which aren't often described in poetry.' Denise Riley on behalf of the judges.
