Event Description

Voices of Eve:
Reduced Womanhood

Tue 9 - Sat 13 May

Six women each tell of a jig-saw piece in their own life-scapes. Six magnified moments in six lives.
Six concentrated, reduced moments. They each tell their stories across years of being and decades of existing. They share so many things - massive moments in human existence. The entire spectrum from joy to grief, love to hate and life to death.

Three monologues will be performed each evening:

Tue 9, Thu 11 + Sat 13 (7.30):

  • One Bed Three Pillows performed by Alison Shephard: The bed is a silent witness. It never makes a value judgement. It just does its job.
  • Pashmina Princess performed by Lynn Hoare: A woman finds some of her lost youth, beauty, libido and a man half her age.
  • Granny Ig performed by Angela Deveraux: Her make up box is an armoury of amunition waging war against mother nature! Will she win?

Wed 10, Fri 12 + Sat 13 (2.30):

  • Fridge Magnet Syndrome performed by Martine Palmer: When is a mother not a mother? When her fridge is empty.
  • Tick! performed by Sarah Bawler: A kidnapped actress languishes in an empty theatre due to her pathological lying and lateness.
  • May Day performed by Rebecca Price: May is 87 years old. She has dementia. Every day is a May day. A call for help. Does anyone hear?
