For some, old age means wisdom. For most, however, http://festival.summerhall.co.uk/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=eventit means decrepitude…especially regarding women.
This show is an encounter between women who met in the 1980s, lost contact, and met again. Together they reflect on the body, a living memory which is transforming and has so much more to tell: all these years may have gone unnoticed, but are always noteworthy.
