What to Expect by team HAC
The hour-long, one-woman show, derived from Virginia Woolf's 1928 exploration of women, poverty, literature and art throughout history is wowing critics, and now audiences, as it tours the UK (selling out at many venues).
Expect to be lead through the performance with a confidence that allows you to indulge in the story being told.
The dramatized exploration of how few women there are in art throughout history, unless spoken about in relation to men, is both heart-breaking and life changing.
Expect to feel sad, angry, happy and proud, and moved.
The performance is not only polished in delivery, it engages the audience and invites thought, emotion and connects all women.
A very poignant watch for everyone.
