Zebra Girl is a psychological thriller with a bold streak of pitch-black humour staring Tom Cullen, Jade Anouka and Sarah Roy, featuring Isabelle Connolly, Anna Wilson-Jones, Moyo Akandé and Buckso Dhillon-Woolley. Based on the one-woman-play “Catherine and Anita” performed by Roy to rave reviews at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and King’s Head Theatre in London, it also marks Zari’s debut feature film.
Catherine’s seemingly perfect rural life is turned upside down after she discovers her husband is hiding a dark secret that leads her to the unthinkable. Murder. Cue Anita, Catherine’s mysterious best friend who shows up to help dispose of the body. As Catherine and Anita reminisce whilst chopping up and bagging up, their intimately intertwined and tortured past rears its ugly head. Reality blurs as Catherine’s tragic past is slowly revealed along with a secret she’s hiding to fight for the future.
