'I'm not sure if this is right or wrong - it's just been going on so goddamn long'


26th February 5pm & 7pm
Two women face the truth of the dissolution of the European egalitarian dream. Everywhere they look things are not equal; in the taxi, on the bench in the middle of a village, in the congregation, in the boardroom, in the home. They tell stories of childbirth, sing about violence and dance about menopause. They remember the lies they were told as children and question the hope that things might be different for future generations. The performance uses puppetry, comedy, song, text and movement to create a hybrid, humorous and powerful perspective on being a woman in Europe today. ‘For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve’ Timothy 2:1
