NEVER VERA BLUE - EDINBURGH FESTIVAL
Anatomy Lecture Theatre - Summerhall | 1-26 AUGUST 2018
By Alexandra Wood
It’s hard to know things, isn’t it? Have you ever found that, it’s really hard to know.
She’s five foot five. She’s almost certain. But if she was the size she thinks she is she couldn’t be here and if she doesn’t even know her own dimensions, what hope is there at all?
Written in response to conversations with survivors of domestic abuse, Never Vera Blue is a disorientating story of one woman’s journey to recover who she is.
From the city to the Kent coast, from a war-torn land to the pit of the stomach, Alexandra Wood’s new play explores just what it means to be made to doubt yourself and how to regain a sense of identity.
