Look how we disappear: from a family, from a life, from a story.

Showings at 5:20pm and 7:30pm, each showing will last 40 minutes.

In a small house in India, Kumkum Malhotra prepares herself for the big evening ahead. Then an accident calls her down, and as she breaks a circle of boys, her carefully planned evening unveils and with it, her sense of self.

Staged to mark the centenary of the Representation of the People Act that first enfranchised some women in the UK, this is a performance for anyone interested in global feminism. Part audio-book, part visual art exhibition, this is a stunning experience of a brilliant, emotive, work.

Based on the award-winning novella by Preti Taneja, author of We That Are Young (winner of the Desmond Elliot Prize for the best debut novel of 2018).

A bar and drinks will be on sale on the night.

‘Taneja’s words are the star. Her writing is so good, it hardly needs anything else to keep our attention.’ Press review.

Commissioned by National Centre for Writing and Norfolk & Norwich Festival

As part of the Story Machine Funhouse event series.

Booking your place is free – pay what you want on the night as you leave.

There will be a bar with drinks for sale during the event.

 

Please read:

We are issuing more tickets than the event capacity as the event is free. This is based on our experience that, on average, approximately a third of tickets booked for free-of-charge events are not used. We strongly recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes before the advertised start time for such events.
