It’s the 1960s, the world is changing. Protesters take the streets for equality and against the Vietnam war, hippies celebrate free love and a young band called “The Beatles” is rising to fame. But not in conservative Switzerland, where women did not get the vote until the 1970s and were legally confined to kitchen and household.
Bette, the star of a popular TV cooking show, and Trudy, a housewife, are about to change that.
“The Good Women” is a brand-new funny, bold and romantic piece of theatre inspired by a true story about two extraordinary women, their losses, battles with addiction and abuse, political repression – and their audacity to love and dream in spite of it all.
We are a female-led British-Irish-European Theatre company founded in 2021 dedicated to telling the stories of women whose voices have been silenced or forgotten. Our first piece, "Homemaking for Beginners" went on to receive a 4-star review following its sold-out run in 2021. For "The Good Women" we have collaborated with a designer and visual artist to create a genre-bending piece of theatre.
