THEATRE, ‘A TALE OF GILEAD’ TAKES
THE AUDIENCE ON A DARK, DYSTOPIAN JOURNEY INTO THE MIND OF AN UNWILLING

THIS IS GILEAD.
THIS IS FREEDOM.
They took her bank account, her job
Then her child.
But she has one thing they desperately need that will keep her alive: for now.
In Gilead, they say, life is better.
But better never means better for everyone.
It always means worse for some.
Brought to stunning audible life, this classic dystopian tale is given flight
from the page, re-imagined in this
unique new production for the stage. Following their sellout performances at
the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, Featherweight bring the show indoors for the
first time in this exciting new venue.
28/09/12 – 30/09/12
