By Franca Rame and Dario Fo
presented by DogOrange
directed by Matthew Parker

Locked up in a flat, a solitary woman makes her confession. Amid domestic chores, dodgy phone calls, a sex-mad brother-in-law and a forever screaming baby she tells us the story of how her love for a young student led to her imprisonment at the hands of her jealous husband. Through farce to tragedy, her story propels the audience to its shocking climax.

DogOrange's inventive new adaptation features a cast of five talented women portraying the many facets of Franca Rame and Dario Fo's Woman Alone. With a mixture of slapstick, fast-paced physical comedy, movement and raw emotion, they explore the heights and depths of this twentieth century classic to the full.

"A maid, a nurse, a babysitter, a charlady. Do all, wash all, f*cked up and f*cked over"

This production follows DogOrange's successful adaptation of Chekhov's Ward No.6 , which was nominated for the Best Ensemble Stage Acting Excellence Award 2009.

Press for previous productions:

"DogOrange match the value of the text with inventive staging, imaginative comic business and confident performances."

"Beautiful and philosophical… played with engaging ferocity. [DogOrange] has taken a classic story and improved upon it showing a vibrant intelligence and sensitivity."
Broadway Baby

"Slick, energetic… highly original, this adaptation is both entertaining and tragic… a provocative and striking production."
