Hewitt's theatre and performance writing, in particular the plays Civilization and its Discontents and Geneva Convention, both with music by Norwegian percussionist/composer Thomas Strønen and developed with an International cast of performers. Songs of the Chambermaids - a stand-alone sequence from the play Civilisation and its Discontents - has been developed as digital theatre / video piece, winning Best Experimental Film following its premiere screening at Brighton Rocks International Film Festival in June 2023.
