The Curse – a play about the blood and guts of being a girl
The Curse: When that time of the month makes you a monster…
Meet Char and Lola. They’re best friends, not-so-sweet sixteen and looking forward to a wild summer now that school’s out. They love their close friendship, but it’s about to be taken to intense new extremes when a terrible mystery starts unfolding in their town…
The Curse is a brand-new fierce and feminist play by Jane Bradley, author and founder of For Books’ Sake, the charitable organisation championing writing by women. Developed into a full-length stage version from a ten-minute short presented originally as part of Commonword’s Women in the Spotlight programme, The Curse has received rave responses from audiences who loved its key themes of mental health, sexuality, intense teen friendship and being a girl.
Supported by Arts Council England, The Curse debuts at the Three Minute Theatre in Manchester in March 2016.
PLUS: Each performance of The Curse is served up with a preceding discussion panel featuring VERY special guests!
