“Sluts, all of you, with your rotten little bastards. I took you off the streets, when decent people wouldn’t look at you … And this is how you repay me!”

Sylvia Rayman’s hard-hitting ‘all-women play’ returns to the White Bear after a highly successful run in October 2013.

Anticipating British theatre’s ‘kitchen sink’ revolution by a full five years, Women of Twilight was first presented in 1951 and filmed the following year. Neglected for over half a century yet still relevant today, this blistering drama – in which unmarried mothers are ruthlessly exploited by an unscrupulous, baby-farming landlady – is a real find.

“The all-female cast provide an exceptional ensemble performance of this piece. I was enthralled throughout.” Everything Theatre

“An astonishing, eye-opening piece of social realism … [with] tremendous performances from each member of the 11-strong all-female cast … Absolutely stunning.” Atomies

“Catch it if you can. It is one of the most interesting and moving plays I have seen this year.” Off-Stage Magazine

Women of Twilight is directed by Jonathan Rigby and designed by Olivia Knight. It forms part of the White Bear’s Lost Classics strand, which has previously unearthed John Osborne’s early plays The Devil Inside Him and Personal Enemy (which transferred to the ‘Brits Off Broadway’ festival in New York).

with Claire Louise Amias, Francesca Anderson, Christie Banks, Amy Comper, Elizabeth Donnelly, Ailsa Ilott, Sally Mortemore, Emma Reade-Davies, Maggie Robson, Vanessa Russell, Emma Spearing.
