“The Good Women” at Kensington & Chelsea Festival
July 27 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
“The Good Women” is a brand-new funny, bold and romantic piece of theatre inspired by a true queer love story.
It’s the 1960s, the world is changing. Protesters take the streets against the Vietnam war, hippies celebrate free love and a young band called “The Beatles” is rising to fame. But not in Switzerland, where women did not get the vote until the 1970s and were legally confined to the kitchen and household.
Bette, the star of a popular TV cooking show, and Trudy, a housewife, are about to change that.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll meet two extraordinary women
“The poignant two-hander depicts burgeoning love against a backdrop of political struggle. Simply staged, the romcom plot balances witty humour, social injustice & emancipation.” – Fringe Biscuit
“This thoughtful glimpse into the difficulties faced by women in the 1960s is gently uplifting, An encouragement to continue the fight for change.” – The British Theatre Guide
