In Celebration & Recognition of Women’s History Month 2021
In the midst of a time of uncertainty, division, and political unrest, a young woman wrestles with her own isolation and call to respond……
WANTED explores the stories of 5 extraordinary ordinary women who share a passion for standing up for what is right! This powerful new play features an array of historical figures; Irena Sendler, who rescued more than 2,500 children from the Warsaw ghetto during the Nazi occupation; Olive Morris, British Black Panther and avid activist for women and squatters’ rights; Phoolan Devi, the fearsome Bandit Queen, and a woman way ahead of her time, Dr. James Barry.
WANTED is written and performed by Tonia Daley-Campbell, Therese Collins , and Pamela Cole-Hudson; the trio wowed audiences in The Sistren and now return to the stage accompanied by April Nerissa Hudson and Karendip Phull to again explore how the past and present collide, played out in Gazebo’s inimitable style; powerful drama littered with humour, honesty and heart.
