The Fruit Trilogy
Sat 2 – Sat April
From Eve Ensler, global activist and Tony Award-winning writer of The Vagina Monologues, comes the world premiere of a trilogy of short plays, each giving a voice to ordinary women. Seen across a single evening, Avocado (Guardian’s 2015 Theatre Top 10), Pomegranate, and Coconut explore, with dark humour and intensity, the humanity behind the headlines.
A young woman takes a chaotic, shocking journey towards freedom.
From the bliss of her bathroom, a woman connects with the one thing she has never fully owned… her body.
