Spend a night with a grand dame and dilettante of death. A stirring solo performance celebrating the wisdom of female elders.
Maureen : Harbinger of Death

With cigarette smoke curling through the air, and Jatz cracker crumbs settling on the carpet, Maureen sits before you. You’re her guest, so you’d better sit up and listen.

It’s in this bohemian living room, accompanied by minimal props or costume, that writer and performer Jonny Hawkins transforms into Maureen: a razor tongued doyenne with stories to tell, inspired by Hawkins’ friend and self-described “working class glamour queen”.

Co-created with director Nell Ranney, Maureen: Harbinger of Death, is a celebration of the rich lives of older women. It lifts up the wisdom, experience, vitality, kindness and humour of women too often overlooked or dismissed by society. A night of wit, imagination and storytelling.
