Bites

Kay Adshead
 

Moving from the biggest democracy on the planet to the newest, Bites takes us to Afghanistan from Texas.

In the last diner at the end of a world ravaged by war, a menu of love, death and revenge is served by the ‘hired help'. Seven courses make for a poetic feast of universal tales looking back to the forgotten war and forward to a nightmarish future.

Kay Adshead's writing demonstrates that theatre has lost none of its ability to grab you by the throat and ask where you stand. - Sunday Times

Bogus Woman, The

Kay Adshead
 
'For the short piece that I wrote for the Red Room, I read hundreds of stories of refugees seeking asylum in this country; the Refugee Council provided me with some of the source material. All of these were sad, but some were sickening, so horrifying as to be almost unbearable. Inspired by these terrible stories, I created my story of The Bogus Woman.' Kay Adshead, 2000.

Bones

Kay Adshead
 
'White people in their big shiny cars drive many kilometres with their sickness which I heal; sickness of the mind, body and of the soul. I charge a bit more for the soul'

At night, a young black boy is 'questioned' by a white South African policeman... 36 years later, when the truth is dug up, a tortured Jennifer watches over her dying husband. But does her maid Beauty have the power to 'save' him, and is the price of remembering a dreadful secret one that Jennifer is prepared to pay?

Bones is a ruthless excavation of South Africa in 2005, and in an age of threats, retribution and bloody revenge, it is an anthem for hope.

Singing Stones, The

Kay Adshead
 
In 2011, all over the Arab World, veiled women took to the streets to protest. Their calls for change were briefly celebrated, soon derided, and eventually ignored. For the first time on stage, The Singing Stones gives voice to their extraordinary stories. These are the women who snitched on Gaddafi, marched on Tahrir Square, defended the bloody borders of Kurdistan, and became the heroines of our century’s greatest struggle. But who are they? What led them to revolution? And where do they go from here? The Singing Stones is a fearless exploration of women and the Arab Spring.
