Kate will take you on a spiritual journey, using mythological narrative to examine violence women have suffered and will suffer at the hands of man.

You have one more chance to this regal being. GO! ... full review

Kate Radford is a revelation. Her one-woman show is emotional, gorgeous, specific, lyrical and intense. She blends intelligent prose and rhyme with a fabulous and deeply melodious use of voice. It was hypnotic and really almost mystical. I highly recommend this show. ... full review
