Voices of Eve - the premiere

We're very excited about this show, which opens on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th at Ellesmere College Arts Centre.  

The evening starts with 'Fridge Magnet Syndrome', a compelling monologue written by our patron, Michael Corbidge. We are given a glimpse into the life of a typical middle-aged woman, struggling with the immense changes that have come into her life with the departure from the home of all her children. 

The second half is a unique blend of narrative, poetry and song. Polly Bolton and Gill McEvoy have created a spellbinding telling of the lives of three real women from Shropshire's past. It will bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your lips, and the haunting melodies will linger in the memory.

Tickets are available online, by phone 01691 830558, or at the door. 

Further performances to follow. 

Voices of Eve

From the wilds of South Shropshire in the eighteenth century to the loneliness of a modern 'empty-nest' mother, the experiences of women reverberate through the ages. Women from the LADS theatre group bring you laughter and tears, poetry and song in this exquisite two-part evocation of womanhood - Out Of The Land, by Polly Bolton and Gill McEvoy, and Fridge Magnet Syndrome, by Michael Corbidge. 

Directed by Pam Johnson.
