SJT Play Reading: Portrait
The McCarthy •
Feminist academic Laura returns to work following the death of her
By Georgina Burns
Price: £5 each or see all 4 for £15
Join us to for a glimpse into the potential future of new productions at the SJT. A chance to experience these wonderful plays alongside their authors for the very first time, with opportunity for discussion at the end.
Feminist academic Laura returns to work following the death of her father. She hangs a painting he has left her in her University office of her grandfathers time in India, sparking accusations of colonial arrogance and racism. Laura’s previous world of certainties is replaced by a febrile campus, competing grievances and demands that she chooses a side.
