We open on Hillary Clinton sat at her kitchen table drinking large glasses of chardonnay in the days following the 2016 presidential election result. She appears to be wearing her classic blue pant suit with the buttons done up in the wrong holes but, as she rises from the table to retrieve more wine from her fridge, she reveals she is, in fact, wearing sweatpants and Ugg-boots on her bottom half. These have been a rough three days.
In the days since the election, Clinton has been consoling herself by reading the works of strong women in history, primarily Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own. As the scene develops, more and more of these women appear at Hillary’s front door and join her at the kitchen table to commiserate with her about the state of the nation’s politics. Around the table, we eventually see Hillary Clinton, Virginia Woolf, Milton’s Eve, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Frida Kahlo, Dido Queen of Carthage and a Midwestern woman named Pam discussing the state of women’s rights, sharing their stories and disagreeing about solutions to problems of misogyny, sexism and the increasing amount of chardonnay they are imbibing.
Join the Cambridge Road Players at Surgeon's Hall in this Fringe debut comedy for some laughs, some chardonnay and to watch a man attempt to tap-dance 'backwards and in high heels' round a photocopier.
