A Jacobean masterpiece of forbidden passion and revenge. Deemed provocative and radical in its time, it remains vividly so today. Set in a world of brutal masculine power and personal ambition this promises to be a gripping and visually stunning theatre event.

In a land blighted by civil war stands a village populated only by women.

These women watch and wait by the riverside for their men to come home- their men who have been 'disappeared'. When broken and bruised bodies begin to surface, the women feel it's time to take matters into their own hands.

From Ariel Dorfman (Death and the Maiden) comes a mythical tale of survival and strength in the face of oppression.
