The Venus Papers is a theatrical poetry show of arrivals, departures and journeys, written and performed by Lydia Towsey, with music and vocals by Dave Dhonau and Ola Szmidt. Plus performances by guest singer-songwriter Julie Felix and poets Helen Ivory and Dzifa Benson.
Venus, the Roman goddess of love and beauty has washed up on British shores in time to witness the frenzy and aftermath of the 2017 snap election. Through the filters of an immigration officer, the media and the general public, Venus experiences what it is to be a 21st century woman - every-woman, immigrant, refugee, outsider - at a time of upheaval and change.
For ages 14+. Part of a national tour funded by Arts Council England.
