Kabosh presents The Shedding of Skin, a play inspired by women in conflict.
Written by Vittoria Cafolla and directed by Paula McFetridge.
Time is different here.
Out of unbearable pain comes inspirational strength.
Three Furies, the voice of many women, meet to give rest to another. Through ritualistically sharing their stories of pain, abuse, resistance, and survival, the Furies strive to release this woman from the space between worlds.
A powerful, epic play about women around the world as a tool of war.
