As a part of FEAST Theatre Festival launch event
Emma Bailey is a modern day Madame Bovary, battling with a stifling middle-class lifestyle, thwarted dreams and untreatable depression. In desperation, she leaves her family behind to embark on a course of pioneering brain therapy, documenting her journey through raw, beautiful poetry.
Based on Sarah James’ poetry collection,which was highly commended in the Forward Prizes 2015, the narrative springs to life through subtle physicality and a haunting musical score.
Introspection and the powerful rhythms of poetry reveal that beauty and tenderness can exist even in pain.
