Nothing Of Woman In Me: About
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.
Presented as the first part of the Shakespeare Institute Players' 65th Anniversary Festival, all proceeds from Nothing Of Woman In Me will be donated amongst four charities supporting women's causes: Women's Aid, Girls Not Brides, The Malala Fund, and Lupus UK. You can donate online here.
