Part of Streamdoor: theatre you can watch from home

“From BBC Radio 4, Shoe Lady is an examination of the social and domestic pressures placed on women to perform multiple and often contradictory roles in our society”

Overview

By E.V. Crowe. The Royal Court production had yet to complete its run when the theatres were closed in March 2020. Lockdown Theatre Festival gives it a new lease of life on radio, using technological solutions to record the actors at home.

Shoe Lady is an examination of the social and domestic pressures placed on women to perform multiple and often contradictory roles in our society. Viv has lost a shoe. They’re her work shoes, her weekend shoes, her only pair of shoes, and she doesn’t know what to do. The curtains are falling, her foot is bleeding, and she’s starting to feel a little overwhelmed. But all will be well in the world once she finds that missing shoe.
