The Rainbow – A Rehearsed Reading of a New Adaptation
Presented By: Nicola Werenowska
10 – 10 Aug 2022
Originally published in 1915, The Rainbow was extraordinarily ahead of its time as Lawrence explores the experiences of three generations of Polish women living in Nottinghamshire at the turn of the 20th century. This groundbreaking adaptation by award-winning neurodivergent playwright Nicola Werenowska, will focus on the women at the centre of this rich work. Through interweaving narration, dialogue, lyrical text and movement, this work creates a space for matrilineal knowledge, and a debate around decolonising narratives by addressing the women's Polish heritage.
