Nothing Of Woman In Me: About

THE REVIVAL: COMING 2019

Nothing Of Woman In Me is a series of five monologues for Shakespeare's voiceless women.

Keep your eyes peeled for a full announcement of our 2019 revival, including the premiere of a brand-new monologue, and newly revised stagings of some of the previous monologues.

ROUND II: The Dell (RSC), July 2018

If a lopped-off tongue babbles in the forest, does it make a sound?

Nothing Of Woman In Me is a series of four monologues for Shakespeare's voiceless women. A betrayed and hopeless Isabella saves herself, while a traumatised Lavinia seeks redress from those who have wronged her. Jessica ponders the absurdity of her life, passed from one man to another. At last Hermione, stiff and tired from centuries as a submissive statue, looks to the unknown for salvation.

Following its premiere in February 2018 at the Shakespeare Institute, Nothing Of Woman In Me has been newly revised and reimagined for the RSC's outdoor space, The Dell. Lady Macbeth has bowed out, and Isabella steps into the fray, with a brand-new monologue, 'The Sisterhood', which picks up where Measure For Measure leaves off.

On 1 July 2018, Nothing Of Woman In Me will return for just two performances, at 12pm and 3pm, in The Dell, the RSC's scenic Avonbank Gardens just next to the theatre. Bring a blanket, bring a picnic, bring your friends and children (it's a family friendly show, now!) and settle in for an hour and a bit of righteous rage. This is a free show for people of all ages.

Please be advised that this performance deals with some of the themes of the plays upon which it is based: Measure For MeasureTitus AndronicusThe Merchant of Venice, and The Winter's Tale. While the show is family friendly, parental guidance is advised.

PREMIERE: The Shakespeare Institute, February 2018

If a lopped-off tongue babbles in the forest, does it make a sound?

Nothing Of Woman In Me is a series of four monologues for Shakespeare's voiceless women. A traumatised Lavinia seeks redress from those who have wronged her. Jessica ponders the absurdity of her life, passed from one man to another, while Lady Macbeth wars with her fractured psyche for dominance in a world that is leaving her behind. At last Hermione, stiff and tired from centuries as a submissive statue, looks to the unknown for salvation.
