Description

'It is terribly easy to laugh at passion'. 1984. The women of Greenham Common are convinced the world is walking blindly into nuclear Armageddon. There is solidarity, shared purpose and much argument. Women grapple with their competing personal priorities, establishment rage and their dire living conditions with resilience, camaraderie and humour. Fast forward to 2009: do the rage, passion and flames of protest still burn as brightly? Lucy Kirkwood’s powerful and hilarious commentary on the women’s movement and the culture of protest as told by one of Edinburgh’s most prestigious amateur theatre companies. By arrangement with Nick Hern.

Fine performances all round in this run through from the Greenham Common protests to the climate protests more recently, with stops for a dig at silly men and politicians. I really enjoyed this, alternately funny and poignant, with the final scene pulling it together delightfully. Pity it only has a short run,

'Bloody Wimmin' is ***** star play. It is a tight, well acted and well directed piece of drama, looking at the highs and lows of both the Greenham Common protest of the 1980s and the rise of the green movement in the early 2000s. With some standout performances, especially by Timothy Bond and Eve Dagba, as well as an incredibly moving monologue by Wendy Mathison to close the play, this piece hits on the personal level and speaks to wider use and purpose of protest and women's role within it. Go see it whilst you can.
