"dark, delirious and magical" HEREFORD TIMES
"striking theatrical invention" THE STAGE

 

 
Three actors in their 20s, 40s and 60s play the same character simultaneously, cheerfully disregarding stereotypes about female performers. The show blends new writing, physical theatre, comedy, a vivid soundtrack and stage magic. The narrative is based on true stories from interviews with women performers, at different stages of their career, about their experience of the public gaze, male or otherwise.

Based on true stories from female performers.

 

Audience Feedback:

"The play was so sensitive, inspiring, clever and touching. I identified with so many parts of it and came away with a knowing that my older self is going to be fine. What a gift to give your audience."

"magical, great performances, beautifully told and realised."

"Loved it. Very clever, so much vertical depth. Funny, entertaining, touching and wise."

"a brilliant show, really meaningful, poignant and funny. Loved it."

"I absolutely loved every minute of it. I cried twice, it was just so touching and I ‘felt’ it so deeply. Truly wonderful, great work all of you."

"I found it funny and wise, inspiring and freeing! Thank you so much."

"A powerful roller-coaster of physical theatre, music, magic and time travel. We talked about it all the way home."

"Absolute magic. Powerful, female-led, truthful and honest with perfect stagecraft. Spoke to my heart."
