Lady Parts Theatre to Make Brighton Fringe Debut With BECAUSE SHE LOVED THE LION, May 3-8

Lady Parts Theatre will make their Brighton Fringe debut with Because She Loved The Lion beginning 3rd May at Upstairs at Ten and Three. The show will run through 8th May and will feature performances at 1:00pm on 3rd-5th May and performances at 7:00pm on 6th-8th May.

Because She Loved The Lion is the story of a mother, her daughter, her sister and a mouse consumed by a lion with a beautiful mane.

Lady Parts Theatre showcases more strong roles for women in this drama about family relationships, and what happens when they break down.

Because She Loved the Lion is the latest work from Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Writer on Attachment Laura-Kate Barrow. It is directed by Peter Mitchelson and performed by Esther Dix, Sarah Keating and Nuala Maguire. It is produced with the support of Liverpool Lantern Theatre.

A collection will be made at each performance for Refuge - the domestic abuse charity. The charity's advice has been invaluable to realising this play.
