The old gal's still got it!
The phone rings. It’s your mother. She needs you to check in on an old friend of hers; her name is Maureen and she’d love some company. You jump on a train, climb the stairs and feign your most polite smile, but the ‘old lady’ you expect to meet and the person on the other side of the door have very little in common.
Maureen’s world is fading around her, but she’s got cats to pat and a mission to change what people think about old ladies. She needs us to learn her story too, before she finally departs.
Inspired by a real-life friend and namesake, this brand-new play is an homage to the voices of older women, told through a queer lens. Jonny Hawkins transforms into Maureen before our eyes, celebrating those who refuse to be invisible, and what it is to be alive, awake, dreaming and dead.
As part of Summer Nights at FRINGE WORLD 2020.
