The Net - Camden Fringe 2019
Tristan Bates Theatre
Set in a "nowhere land" a grandmother and her granddaughter are tasked with patching a hole in the border. As they weave it closed, two women appear on the other side, hoping to get through. The women must come face to face with each other as opinions change and loyalties switch. Mixing poetic choral monologues and cutting dialogue, The Net brings a new dimension to the age-old story of war by placing women at the centre, while exposing how utterly foolish the divides we create are. It is an ensemble piece that aims to highlight women of all different backgrounds and ages: from 16 to 70. The play uses the personal stories of these four women and their interactions with each other to interrogate larger political themes.
