“We are not angry enough”
In the aftermath of war, a group of women begin a new fight. They are not victims. They will be heard.
A vibrant, impassioned new play by one of South Africa’s boldest new playwrights; Free Falling Bird is a shot in the arm for contemporary South Africa. Amy Jephta plays fast and loose with Euripides' The Trojan Women, remixing this classic with the language of free-form jazz, poetry, tragedy and spectacle. An astonishing anthem of defiance, raising urgent questions about race, female identity and violence.
Free Falling Bird was first directed by Rob Drummer at The Bush Theatre Radar Festival, November 2013.
