Tues 17 Mar, The Core Theatre theatre & dance
By Gazebo Theatre Co.
WANTED explores the stories of 5 extraordinary women throughout history, who are all brought together with one thing in common – a passion for standing up for what is right! This array of historical figures includes Irena Sendler, who rescued more than 2,500 children from the Warsaw ghetto during the Nazi occupation; Olive Morris, British Black Panther and avid activist for women and squatters rights; Phoolan Devi, the fearsome Bandit Queen, and a woman way ahead of her time, Dr James Barry.
WANTED is written and performed by Pam Cole-Hudson, Tonia Daley-Campbell and Therese Collins, the trio wowed audiences in The Sistren and now return to the stage accompanied by two further performers to again explore what these women from the past can teach us about our lives today, played out in Gazebo’s inimitable style; powerful drama littered with humour, honesty and heart.
