‘’How Much Is That Woman in the Window?’
Project Arts Centre
6th, 7th, 8th & 9th March.
How much is that woman in the window? was previously performed at the Edinburgh Festival and Soho Theatre in London to critical acclaim. In an effort to rescue the term “feminist” from its negative depiction in the press, Keith Farnan questions whether we value women or simply put a value on them during the celebration of International Woman’s Day on the 8th March. Over the past few years, Primark have been caught selling push up bra’s to 7 year olds, a Doctor revealed she was the high class escort Belle De Jour and elections around the world have returned even fewer female politicians than before. Since the show was originally performed, the harsh reality of the economy is forcing many women to make difficult choices in relation to their life/work balance.
Meanwhile, Iceland turned to a female Prime Minister and all the EU have turned to Angela Merkel to save them from ruin…or clean up the mess. Despite these exceptions women’s involvement at the highest level of the corporate world remains embarrassingly low. Having performed internationally acclaimed shows about the death penalty, racism and crippling economics, Keith is well placed to deliver a thoughtful, entertaining and funny show about what we want from women, and what they want from themselves.
