Monstrous Woman

3 - 6 November 2021 Subiaco Arts Centre, Studio Buy tickets

Presented by Tempest Theatre

A radical feminist adaptation of Phaedra.

I was a woman, a mark for the world’s contempt. The story of Phaedra is one of lust and shame.

Phaedra was the wife of King Theseus, an older woman with an all-consuming lust for her stepson Hippolytus. Monstrous Woman is a highly visual, metaphorical allegory investigating the Intersections between repressed desire and the older woman. The play rewrites the myth of the damaging effects of the sexual transgressions of mothers and the tides of fate.
