Sylvia Rayman's WOMEN OF TWILIGHT to Return to White Bear, 6-26 Jan
Sylvia Rayman's hard-hitting 'all-women play' returns to the White Bear after a highly successful run in October 2013.
Anticipating British theatre's 'kitchen sink' revolution by a full five years, Women of Twilight was first presented in 1951 and filmed the following year. Neglected for over half a century yet still relevant today, this blistering drama - in which unmarried mothers are ruthlessly exploited by an unscrupulous, baby-farming landlady - is a real find.
Women of Twilight is directed by Jonathan Rigby and designed by Olivia Knight. It forms part of the White Bear's Lost Classics strand, which has previously unearthed John Osborne's early plays The Devil Inside Him and Personal Enemy (which transferred to the 'Brits Off Broadway' festival in New York).
The show stars Claire Louise Amias, Francesca Anderson (Offie Nominated), Christie Banks, Amy Comper, Elizabeth Donnelly, Ailsa Ilott, Sally Mortemore, Emma Reade-Davies, Maggie Robson, Vanessa Russell, Emma Spearing.
