A Woman Alone At Tabard Theatre
Daniela Lavender stars in this fantastical black comedy
'A Woman Alone' is the story of a housewife held prisoner in her own home, driven to madness by her abusive relationship with a possessive husband and the drudgery of household chores. But can a passionate affair with a young boy let her escape or will the constant harassment from her wheelchair bound brother-in-law send her overboard?
Daniela Lavender (wife of Sir Ben Kingsley) recently completed a European tour with the British Shakespeare Company’s critically acclaimed production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. She has also appeared in feature films ‘The Scientist’, 'Ali G in Da House', 'Longitude' and 'Emotional Backgammon’ for which she received the Best Acting Award at the Denver World Film Festival.
'A Woman Alone' was written by Dario Fo and Franca Rame (English translation by Gillian Hanna), two of Italy's best-known performers, playwrights, and political activists. The courage of their convictions and their political and social commitment have involved them in numerous controversies with the state, the police, censors, television, and the Vatican.
