At The Door Laughing
Three of the vulnerability plays were prompted by writer Rebecca Solnit's query "..how do we care for one another when we can't be physically present with each other." At The Door Laughing is the 2nd of these three.
 
Ornamental

The only text in the Vulnerability plays in monologue form, probably because I couldn't initially I couldn't find anyone online to act with me. Ornamental was selected for the Bankside "Great Get Together', an annual celebration of the late MP, Jo Cox.

 

Mothering

 Mothering is based on conversations with women I met when I lived in the Middle East, 2017-2019. It was performed at the British Embassy, Riyadh, KSA.  A video version of this text is due 2021. Mothering was also selected for broadcast as part of the Bankside Great Get Together in June 21, 2020, an online/ on air street party for the Jo Cox Foundation Campaign.
