Overview

Talk Thy Tongue Weary tells the story of a theatre costume: a dress. It was designed for a British opera production and found years later by its designer (the performer of this show) on a rail in a costume hire house.

Meticulously researched and designed, carefully constructed by a team of women, then worn enthusiastically by the mature soprano in the leading role, the costume was cut from the opera in un-feminist circumstances. This solo performance will celebrate and give voice to collective female artistry and the full, concealed story of the dress.

This performance explores how a feminist perspective on stage design is forged while working within a traditional theatre hierarchy – where a designer’s work may be seen, but she is not always heard.
