Voices of Eve: Reduced Womanhood

Type of Event: Drama Performance


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 or afternoon:

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 judegement. 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?
