"She' (Jess Stenglein) the barmaid represents all women; those loved, those abused, those used; those ignored and invisible. Stenglein magnificently inhabits the stereotypes of women described by the men; mother, lover, slut, tough bar chick, 'Stepford' wife and girlfriend. "She' like Wonder Woman's golden 'lasso of truth' extracts the essence of the conflict, weaves the three stories together, and challenges the men's perceptions about their relationships. Dare I say that Stenglein multitasking epitomizes that 'a woman's work is never done!'
'Wayang' Indonesian shadow puppets tell the ancient stories of Egypt and portray the many gods that feature in rituals about death and the afterlife. Specifically the 'weighing of the heart' ceremony; where the hearts of the dead are weighed against the 'feather of truth'. If the heart is lighter than the feather, the soul receives eternal life and if it is heavier they are doomed to eternal damnation. It is fitting that the show runs during the Easter period; also based on ritualised beliefs about death and the afterlife.
