The Venus Papers at Slamdunk, Hastings

  • Printworks 14 Claremont Hastings TN34 1HE (map)

A theatrical poetry show of arrivals, departures, landscapes and journeys, written and performed by Lydia Towsey, as a pared down version of the full show, specially presented as part of Slamdunk in Hastings.

Through the filters of an immigration officer, the tabloids and the general public, Venus experiences what it means to be a 21st century woman - traveler, every-woman, immigrant, outsider - at a time of social, cultural and political turmoil and change

Suitable for 14+
