WOMEN OF MUD (article first published : 2000-09-21)

Women of Mud - devised, scripted, directed and performed by Wendy Nell and Gisele Turner - is an original two-hander which highlights core issues in the lives of two mature women on the threshold of self-discovery. The deceptively simple plot revolves around Louise and Grail on a vision quest. The real, the imagined and the unimaginable are subtly intertwined in this intriguing drama.

The production is described as “mercilessly honest, as layer after layer is exposed and the women are forced to face themselves, each other, their fears and their dreams. Woven into the play is a story, a humorous and energetic modern mythology, which tracks the course of relationship, highlighting gender issues. Grail and Louise make an intriguing journey into the unknown, and emerge triuiphant and humbled.”

Women of Mud will take part in the Slice of Madness Festival at the Kwasuka Theatre this month. There will be four performances on October 6, 15, 21 and 26.
