Mr Jones, a performance about a woman who lives love until she has bled her heart dry. A solo with live music, a double bass, and a wig. A wig that’s at least 50 metres long. A strong piece about a woman who is waiting – for everything, but above all for a man.
Whereas in the traditional stage canon the "suffering woman” is often not aware of how and why she is suffering, but in the play, the realisation of suffering invariably leads to desperation, enlightenment, alienation, self-deprecation, lucidity, and finally, more suffering. (A tribute to Amy Winehouse.)
