for Pursued By A Bear Theatre and directed by Rosamunde Hutt
In Women’s History Month 2023, a fantastical, heart-catching, time-travelling tale of female experiences and women taking flight.
There’s a room in the care home that no one goes into. Jade, who had to relinquish her high-flying life as cabin crew and now works as a carer, steps across the threshold.
Voices from adventure’s golden age surround her: women who flew Spitfires, crossed continents in pursuit of Chairman Mao, parachuted out of rickety hot air balloons, shouted ‘No Surrender’ into the mouths of the guns.
Long forgotten stories tell themselves. The song and voices of pioneering women ring around the room.
