Widows

8th Nov 2011 - 7:30pm

The Arts Centre

Edge Hill University Performing Arts Department 3rd Year Students present Widows by Ariel Dorfman & Tony Kushner at the Rose Theatre.

Tickets £8.00 / £4.50 concessions

By the author of Death and the Maiden, Widows begins with a group of poor peasant women in an unnamed country washing laundry by the river. When a faceless corpse floats by, a struggle begins amongst the women as to who should bury the body, each believing the man to be her missing loved one ‘disappeared’ under the corrupt regime. Invoking images of water, love, dreams and desire, this magical realist production weaves physical theatre and powerful imagery with Dorfman’s text.

“A remarkable attempt to dramatise in a semi-mythical way the consequences of the recent appalling abuses of human rights” – Independent on Sunday

This performance will take place in the Rose Theatre
