Airlock Theatre  


Written by Airlock Theatre
Directed by Robbie Taylor Hunt

Starring Ella Duffy

‘I desire you would remember the ladies, and be more generous and favourable to them than your ancestors’ (Abigail Adams, former First Lady, 1776).

Mrs Icarus, Eleanor Roosevelt, Queen Herod, Mrs Quasimodo…

Based on and incorporating The World’s Wife by Carol Ann Duffy, this is a journey through history and mythology from the obscured, female perspective. Including poetry, physical theatre, puppetry and verbatim, this is an exploration of womanhood through the ages.

After all, behind every great man…

“Equally funny and profound” (LondonTheatre1, 5 Stars)

“Ella Duffy captivates us with her varied portrayals of a parade of women who have been misused and misrepresented.” (Fringe Review)

“Engrossing, moving and captivating” (Broadway Baby, 4 stars.)
