Whore devised by Barefaced Theatre at Resistance Gallery


Whore, devised by Barefaced Theatre, at the Resistance Gallery, in Bethnal Green, east London, from 10 to 23 Nov 2010

Directed by Rob Watt, dramaturg by Bethia Mckinley, sound by Craig Barrett.

Taking inspiration from 4 prolific prostitutes from history this immersive journey will recount their dark, and at times, humorous stories. Meet Theresa Berkley a 19th Century Dominatrix, Marie Duplessis a famous French courtesan, Polly Adler a New York 1920's brothel madam and Valerie Solanas, American prostitute turned Warhol assassin. What links all these extraordinary women is their distorted relationship to the sex trade and how they survive within this both illustrious and unyielding industry, the industry of Whore’s.
