Triptych: Tales of Pleasure & Shame
by Laura Horton in Plymouth, England, UK
Triptych is series of short form original plays by Laura Horton that are united by ideas of shame & suppression of female experiences.
Performed by an electric ensemble of South West based actors & creatives, the piece will run in early December at Theatre Royal Plymouth.
The first piece explores how under researched women’s bodies are & in light of this, how long it takes for medical issues to be diagnosed.
The second looks at pleasure across generations. Why do we call it a loss of virginity when it could be a debut sex act? Why is there so much shame around pleasure?
The third is about having too much stuff and how hard it is to date when you’re a hoarder.
All of the pieces have personal resonance with Laura and are also issues that are under-explored while affecting many people. Laura & Lucy want to set up discussion groups post performance for people have safe spaces to discuss the plays & the topics addressed.
This is an opportunity to employ local actors & other creatives, building connections in the South West & also producing quality work to tour the UK & expand the geographical networks for artists here.
Your donation will go towards a fee for all the artists involved, as well as making a Pay What You Can livestreamed performance available to ensure the production is as accessible as possible.
