A whirlwind tour of a forbidden zone, is a play with different female voices from a six year old girl to a Seventy year old woman. These women discuss witnessing the birth of a grand daughter, surviving rape in the Bosnian war, participating in a vagina workshop, finding a man who is “happy to look at it”. Celebrating femaleness, removing taboos, funny, outrageous, angry.
A note from the Director…
“I wanted a play for female actors; one that would stretch them – three actors play multiple roles and ages. I feel this is an important piece as there aren’t often plays put on with such strong female roles and voices, and because it is less about the set and the costume and all about the acting and characterisation.”
THIS SHOW WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE OLD COURT THEATRE, SPRINGFIELD ROAD, CHELMSFORD.
