WOMANS (like ROMANS but with a ‘W’!)
“Highly entertaining…riotous fun!”
It’s 44BC, Ancient Rome. Our hero, Leta has been declared a traitor by the Roman Senate. She is given a punishment worse than death “Damnatio Memoriae” – to be erased from history. Whilst noble Gladiators and infamous Emperors around her are becoming legends, her name will be scratched out and forgotten forever. But with the help from some unexpected muses, she decides to rebel against the Republic.
Developed with support from Arts Council England & Beaford Arts, the show has already toured widely in the UK to venues including Salisbury Playhouse, the Wardrobe Theatre & VAULT Festival to critical acclaim.
Scratchworks is an all-female theatre ensemble from Devon. Using diverse theatrical styles, who create original stories with a unique blend of live music, dynamic movement and farcical comedy.
