Following the huge success of our production of ‘Midnight Bluebells Ring Out Loudly’ during International Women’s Week, Kairos WWT and Caste Away Arts’s collaborative project – Women on Top have done it again!
‘Mirror Madness’ was performed on Friday 29th July, 2011 to a packed and lively audience. This absurd piece was devised by Women on TOP inspired by the women’s own inanimate objects being sprung to life in writing workshops led by writing workshop leader Jen Bakewell! Mirror Madness is a fantasy tale of bitter revenge and unrequited love! There are a few bad songs (actually they were fab), magic spells, twins who are poles apart, a bird and filthy mirror. Does this make any sense? Well it’s not supposed to its theatre of the absurd!
This show was so uplifting and inspiring despite having just under a week to get it all together. A huge well-done to everyone involved, the cast, the volunteers and project workers! A reaped performance is on the cards and more exciting project that celebrates the voices of women in theatre. A massive thank you to Kairos WWT who have accommodated and produced this project and allowed it to flourish to the success it has become. This is what you get when women unite and work together. WOMEN ON TOP!
