Midlife: Diverse City

All performances are audio-described in-house

Hold tight. There’s a change coming.

Claire was the south east of England disco dancing champion in 1982. Surely, she can’t be menopausal. Jacqui’s busy looking after the grandkids and keeping an eye on her ex-partner’s mum but there’s some stuff she needs to get off her chest. Karen lives alone by the sea. She’s a survivor.

These are midlife women – unpaid carers, up-all-nighters, emotional load bearers, shoulders to cry on, school-runners and piece-picker-uppers. Join them as they find a way through the loss, mess, despair, frustration, freedom, joy and possibility of the middle years.

Performances on Wednesday 19, Thursday 20 and Friday 21 February are at 7:45 pm. On Saturday 22 February there is a matinee perfomance at 3 pm and an evening performance at 7:45 pm. Book your tickets here.

Listen to the audio programme.
