Paisley for GM Fringe at Leaf

Paisley is a deeply personal piece of theatre focusing on culture and its development from a woman’s perspective.

Set within such a intimate space as a bedroom, it explores the societal problems set upon ourselves and the lingering scars left behind by our psyche. Be prepared to be taken beyond the realms of these four walls as we uncover a new perspective through the magic of storytelling.

This show pride itself on making more visibility for the equally strong but equally different female characters. An opportunity that we know unfortunately doesn’t happen as much as it should.

So what a way to celebrate 100 years since women have been able to vote by seeing a play that depicts women’s progression through different cultures.

Something of a privilege to perform an all-female play in the heart of Manchester where the Suffragettes were born.

Paisley is about women supporting each other through real-life issues that a makeover can’t fix.
