Lent Week 3
Four women present four pieces of drama, 'A Woman Alone', 'The Same Old Story', 'The Rape', 'The Whore in the Madhouse': comic, grotesque and tragic, all triumphantly attesting to the power of female sexuality, and individuality.
This exploration of Abuse, Desire, Harassment, and Oppression will take the audience to extremes of laughter, fear, pain, hope and despair.
A housewife who 'has everything any woman could want' evaluates her roles as wife, mother, mistress, object of desire, slave. And woman. A woman falls pregnant to her left-wing, intellectual lover, whom she cannot persuade to be considerate of her. A young woman is abducted, tortured and raped by three men in a van, and is dumped in a park. A prostitute relates her story to a psychiatrist interviewing her in a mental institution.
