Image of an Unknown Young Woman
by Elinor Cook
“Yes, but she’s visible. She matters.”
A young woman in a yellow dress has been shot by the police. It was caught on camera. As the video of this violent act goes viral, the yellow dress becomes a symbol that sparks and fuels a revolution. Elinor Cook’s play, Image of an Unknown Young Woman, blends the personal with the political and poses the question: how can a symbol help, hinder, and hurt in times of great change?
Elinor Cook was the winner of the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright in 2013 and a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Award in 2018. Image of an Unknown Young Woman premiered at the Gate Theatre, London, in 2015.
