For four hundred years the men have had their say. Now it’s her turn.
Kate the Curst
and Jailer’s Daughter.
"Women have served all these centuries as looking glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size...Suppose, for instance, that men were only represented in literature as the lovers of women, and were never the friends of men, soldiers, thinkers, dreamers; how few parts in the plays of Shakespeare.. literature would be incredibly impoverished, as indeed literature is impoverished beyond our counting by the doors that have been shut upon women.”
- Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own
A new play about the rejection and savage strength of the female voice through the roots of the iconic daughters of Shakespeare.
Written and directed by Whit Hertford.
