This exciting new anthology play is a montage of 7 short pieces that shine a spotlight on older women, engaging in conversations often thought taboo.
Mixing comedy, drama and even a touch of the tragic.
The debut play of writer, publisher and arts critic, Tanya Batson-Savage, Woman Tongue explores love, sex, sexuality, evolving family dynamics, changing mores and values, life and death, prostitution, and death.
“I am particularly excited to be producing such an fascinating play that pulls together some diverse and thoroughly entertaining often irreverent stories which under the expert directorial hand of Eugene Williams and this stellar cast are going to take the audience on a thoroughly enjoyable emotional ride” said Scarlette Beharie
Woman Tongue will also benefit from the great technical skills of Angela Gay-Magnus for musical direction, Bryony Kummer-Seddon for set design, Charl Baker for costumes and Neila Ebanks for movement.
