Pascal Theatre Company takes the train!
A Manchester Girlhood, written and directed by Julia Pascal, performed by Lesley Lightfoot, Amanda Maud, Eoin O’Dubhghaill, Giselle Wolf and Rosie Yadid tours to the north and returns to London.
Competition. Rivalry. War. Racism. Religion. Women’s Education. Passion. Women’s Rights. Arranged Marriage.
These are central themes in Julia Pascal’s witty and dynamic new play. This radical, multi-layered theatre work uses Brechtian cabaret and Greek stage techniques to explore 20th century Jewish exile from Europe. It reveals the effects of identity-crisis, the struggle for women’s freedom, intense family rivalry and the dilemma of marriage. This script is fuelled by a desire to show major recent historical events through the eyes of girls and women.
