Event Description

peeling is a play within a play exploring the relationship between women, their bodies and children against a backdrop of man-made conflict. At times riotously funny, recipes, insults and secrets are shared and women’s control over their bodies explored.

 

Synopsis

 

Four performers, who are part of the chorus of The Trojan Women, Then and Now, an epic, post-modern production being played out before them, wait at the back of the stage where they have been shoved because the theatre dressing rooms are not accessible to them.

 

As they await their brief moments in the spotlight, they comment on the action that they witness night after night. They discuss war and its effects, desire, motherhood, reproductive rights and, of course, celebrity gossip. They stich sequins on to knickers, knit and make soup out of sight of the audience. As they bitch, moan and share, we get to know them, what they are hiding and what they choose to reveal.
