The Bogus Woman takes Centre Stage

The good news is that Kay Adshead’s devastating play, The Bogus Woman, has taken the centre stage in the land Down Under.

It has already been selected as one of the five top theatre shows to see in the upcoming Adelaide Fringe Festival in South Australia, according to The Advertiser newspaper report.

The Bogus Woman
is a powerful political play on aspects of immigration procedures – a highly successful one woman show.

It is a play which speaks to us through a poetic language that is both brutal and beautiful. A commanding moral voice on stage!

Full credits to Sarah Niles who plays over 48 different characters as the story is told of a young African woman who has to flee her country, after the mass murder of her family and seeks asylum in London.

Kay Adshead has effectively used modern theatre to give voice to those who are struggling for justice and freedom under the most difficult circumstances.

A great political theatre!
