The Rise of the Bogus Woman

Kay Adshead’s devastating play, The Bogus Woman, has taken centre stage in the land Down Under. It has already been picked as one of the five top theatre shows to see in the upcoming Adelaide Fringe Festival in South Australia, according to The Advertiser newspaper report.

Indeed, The Bogus Woman is a powerful political play on aspects of immigration procedures – a highly successful one woman show. It is a play which speaks to us through a poetic language that is both brutal and beautiful.

Full credits to Sarah Niles who plays over 48 different characters as the story is told of a young African woman who has to flee her country, after the mass murder of her family, and seeks asylum in London.

A great political theatre!
