‘An Evening of Franca Rame & Dario Fo’ by Burjesta Theatre

On Saturday 23 Sept from 8pm, Burjesta Theatre presents four pieces of feminist theatre from Italian radicals Franca Rame and Dario Fo. Three actresses will interpret four pieces, combining the political with the social and exploring feminist views of life; part-comic grotesquerie, part-tragedy, at times shocking, at others charmingly funny, and certainly not for the faint-hearted.

‘A Woman Alone’ where a house-wife deals with contending claims of a family groper, a Peeping Tom and a lovelorn boy.

‘Medea’, a comic-grotesque interpretation of Euripides classic tale of infanticide.

The Rape’ an account of Franca Rame’s actual abduction and rape by fascists in the 1970s.

‘Rise and Shine’ the double oppression of women as both worker and wife explored.
