Three years ago a theatremaker set out to investigate woman’s tireless pursuit of alone time. She presents her findings, veering between texts by great female thinkers, banal thoughts about crockery, and intimate vignettes from a marriage.

No Woman is an Island is a meditation on geographies of the self. It maps the internal and external spaces in which we live our lives while walking a wonky line through cultural theories and histories of female solitude.

A play on the performance lecture, Róisín Stack’s wry fragmented text explores the worth and nature of ‘doing’ and who we are when finally left alone.

World Premiere.
