Four stories from acclaimed Italian dramatists Franca Rame and Dario Fo.

‘A Woman Alone’ where a house-wife deals with contending claims of a family groper, a Peeping Tom and a lovelorn boy. A comic-grotesque interpretation of Euripides classic tale of infanticide, ‘Medea’, ‘The Rape’ an account of Franca Rame’s actual abduction and rape by fascists and in ‘Rise and Shine’ the double oppression of women as both worker and wife is explored.

‘A beautiful piece of theatre which showcases Dario Fo and Franca Rama’s work wonderfully…(the) wonderful Ms. Durkan punishes the stage with her rampant wit’
8.5/10 – Liverpool Sound & Vision
