“With hurried footsteps these women flee from pain and discrimination...” Dacia Maraini
HURRIED STEPS has been invited to return to the Cockpit Theatre, in London, on the 13th November 2013 at 2.15 p.m. to take part in this year's Arts of Wellbeing Festival.
HURRIED STEPS was written by the award winning Italian writer, Dacia Maraini who has spent her career investigating women's issues. She has written a UK story exclusively for this production which was first produced in association with the Finborough Theatre and has since been shown all over the UK, stimulating discussion and raising funds for local women’s refuges.
The director, Nicolette Kay’s previous credits include Dacia Maraini’s ‘Mary Stuart’ at BAC “Nicolette Kay directs the often exhilarating proceedings…a production of character.” The Guardian; and ‘Love Child’ by Joanna Murray-Smith at The Finborough Theatre “Two fine performances in Nicolette Kay's gripping but measured production." Evening Standard. She was in the premiere of Anthony Minghella’s ‘Love Bites’ and ‘With All My Love I Hate You’ by Lynda La Plante.
New Shoes Theatre is proud to be a part of “16 Days” a programme of global events to mark efforts to end violence against women.
“The stories are hair-raising…..this is an important step… small as it… is to raise the consciousness of the world to this endless existing problem. It’s BEAUTIFUL work from the Finborough, the actors, director and designers..” Blanche Marvin, London Theatreviews
“You cannot help but feel sadness at the stories, and that makes you want to go out and do something.” Jafa Iqbal, EXTRA! EXTRA!
We will have a colection for the local women’s refuge.
SCHOOLS PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PLAY CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS
