Presented by Cash Carraway
“16 years, 13 refuges, 12 productions of the Vagina Monologues – because if you live in a women’s refuge you will be invited to see the Vagina Monologues. And it will star Linda Robson.”
Cash is a self-confessed “refuge connoisseur”. She knows the refuges with the best counsellors, clothing donations and the ones closest to the heartiest of ‘all you can eat’ buffets. Over the past 16 years she has escaped to refuges in Aldershot to Grantham and everywhere in between and after the ceiling crashes in the safe house she shares with her daughter she attempts to make sense of their journey and vows to begin a new life free from violence.
Inspired by real life events, this darkly humorous, spoken-word performance looks at the media portrayal of working class women, government cuts to domestic violence services and life in a women’s refuge.
Refuge Woman is directed by Conrad Murray and supported by Camden Peoples Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism and Arts Council England.
This production may contain strong language.
On Thursday 8th November the performance will be followed by a Q&A with local journalists who contributed to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism’s research into domestic violence provision in Camden.
Tickets are automatically included when you book for the show.
