It is Christmas Eve and ‘Rose,’ a woman in a red dress, awakes to find that she has no memory of who or where she is. As she gradually weaves the threads of memory together, a dark and violent picture begins to emerge. Compelled to leave for fear of her life Rose begins to pack… but it’s dark outside and the house is full of strange noises. Will she escape, before her attacker returns? Or is he still in the House?
xtensively and accurately researched this highly acclaimed production – LADY IN RED – combines superb dialogue, a compelling plot, inspired performance and evocative colours to create an unforgettable experience – a journey through one woman’s attempts to leave an abusive relationship. Power and control, physical, emotional and psychological abuse, fear of the unknown and “Why doesn’t she just leave?” are just some of the issues raised in this contemporary look at domestic violence.
This performance is FREE for women and girls and is followed by an after-show discussion with the writers and actors. Information on domestic abuse will be available and an opportunity to make a donation, if you wish, to support the project and Sheffield Women’s Aid.
