New Play – peeling – Hertford Theatre Tuesday 24th September

Taking Flight’s critically acclaimed production of Kaite O’Reilly’s rarely performed play ‘peeling’ is coming to Hertford theatre on 24th September!

Featuring an extraordinary cast of D/deaf and disabled women who are unapologetic in their views and provocations.

This production is brought to life on stage by actors Bea Webster, Stephanie Lacey, Ruth Curtis and actress and interpreter Erin Hutching as Zoe, the stage manager who tries to keep Alfa, Beaty and Coral in line whilst also integrating BSL interpretation into the action.

The show is coming to Hertford Theatre on the 24th of September, 1.30pm & 7.45pm!

Peeling, is a play in which the main characters are the chorus in an epic production of Greek tragedy The Trojan Women await their brief moment in the spotlight while every night the action plays out elsewhere.

Insults, recipes and stories are shared about mothers and children and why we never seem to remember our hard-learned lessons of war.

Often blisteringly funny, at times almost unbearably painful; peeling takes us backstage into a world of secrets, a world where these fierce, astute and capable women are always the chorus and never the lead.

With interwoven British Sign Language, live audio description and captions, access is at the very heart of this play, and is central to all of Taking Flight’s productions.

This play is suitable for people over the age of 14 as it contains references to adult themes such as war, miscarriage & the refugee experience.
