Lancaster Litfest and Renaissance One presents The Venus Papers

  • The Storey Auditorium Meeting House Lane Lancaster LA1 1TH United Kingdom
One of the new, intriguing voices of her time.
— Jean 'Binta' Breeze on Lydia Towsey

A theatrical poetry show of arrivals, departures, landscapes and journeys

Written and performed by Lydia Towsey

The Venus Papers presents and offers up tales of 21st century women – every-woman, immigrant, refugee, outsider - in a time of social, cultural and political turmoil and change.

It starts from a question of What if Venus, the Roman Goddess of love and beauty, washed up on a beach at this moment in time?  How would she fare with customs and immigration? With perceptions of her as a refugee or a newcomer? The show is about how we look - at ourselves, at each other, and the world - and how others influence the way we do so. Suitable for 14+

Absolutely spectacular” Poet in the City
