‘When I was growing up… I never thought my life was narrow or my chances bleak... I opened the book and went through.’
Winterson’s first novel published in 1985, tells the story of a young girl, religious obsession, poverty, adoption and love. Since publication it has been found on the shelves of bookshops Cookery and LGBT sections, but can now be found onstage in this version devised and adapted by a new generation of theatre makers.
Set in the past and retold for today’s audience in which bible tales, life tales and fairy tales collide.
A tale told by a girl, full of sound and fury, signifying everything.
There will be post show Q&As after the 1.30pm performances on February 26 and February 28.
