Joanne

11 August 2016 – 12 August 2016

Five characters share a common thread: Joanne. But it’s not about her. It’s about Stella, whose tomorrow is as far away as winter from summer. It’s the way Grace finds her song on the footpath between two cars. It’s about Alice’s MBA wasted on plugging holes, Kath’s patients crawling alongside her after the night shift and it’s Becky caught in the crosshairs of what’s best and what’s right for her students.

But what about her? What about Joanne?

Performed by Olivier Award nominated Tanya Moodie, five of the most exciting voices in theatre explore the pressures on our public services as one young woman buckles under pressures of her own.

Joanne ran from 13 October for a three week run at Soho Theatre Upstairs in 2015

Catch JOANNE at The RSC's Making Mischief Festival this summer
