Age of Arousal

By Linda Griffiths, Wildly inspired by George Gissing’s The Odd Women

Directed by Ian Fenwick

Presented by UFV Theatre

A lavish, sexy ensemble piece about the forbidden and gloriously liberated self.

It’s 1885 and the typewriter and the Suffragettes are sending things topsy-turvy. An early suffragette, Mary, runs a typing school for women with her younger lover, Rhoda. These new women take on three siblings as their pupils, spinsters Virginia, Alice and their sensual sister Monica, and find their liberal rules and ambitions challenged in every way. When Mary’s cousin Everard joins the scene, discoveries of passion, marriage, and the rights and roles of women are bursting like corsets with unbridled desire.

January 8-26, 2014
