Mid Life

Date: Wednesday, Feb 12 - Sunday, Mar 8
Venue: Bristol Old Vic: Weston Studio

Diverse City presents:

Claire was the South East of England Disco Dancing Champion in 1982. Surely, she can’t be menopausal? Jacqui’s busy looking after the grandkids and keeping an eye on her ex-partner’s mum but there’s some stuff she needs to get off her chest. Karen lives alone by the sea. She’s a survivor.

These are menopausal women – unpaid carers, up-all-nighters, emotional load bearers, school-runners and piece-pickeruppers. Join them as they find a way through the loss, despair, frustration, freedom, joy and possibility of the middle years.
