Marlowe's Women is a one-woman show by Lizzie Willis that was created under the direction of Prof. Kenneth Pickering and Sally Elkerton. Part talk, part performance, the piece explores a variety of female characters in Marlowe's works. This production was commissioned by The Marlowe Society and has been performed in Canterbury and London as part of the Society’s annual Marlowe Days.
This webcast will take place on Tuesday, 12 May at 7 pm. The performance lasts approximately 15 minutes, with time for questions and a chat afterwards.
Lizzie is co-founder of ReShake Theatre in Sandwich, Kent and has experience both as a teacher and a performer. Recently, she created a solo piece called Baby Elephant in the Room, inspired by her experiences of motherhood, which was performed at the Gulbenkian, Canterbury. She also directed and performed in a unique interpretation of Macbeth for ReShake Theatre last year. Last January, Lizzie enjoyed performing in Chasing the Butterfly (directed by Luke Dixon) at the National Portrait Gallery as part of its Friday Lates scheme.
