Emma Bovary, Hedda Gabler, Anna Karenina, Phedre and Mrs Danvers (created by Tolstoy, Ibsen, Racine, Flaubert, du Maurier) are the pulse of this play, leading the audience through the tumultuous exploration of their own archetypal beauty, what beauty means and what it costs to be beautiful.
Director and designer Michael Beh brings the movement and dialogue of the story together with a result of absolute power and precision acting that tells a clear story with the subtle artistry reminiscent of a lucid, dream-like state.
