“How can I leave with the bed unmade and
The curtains lopsided.
What kind of person does that make me?
Not fit for work.
Not fit to be a mother.”
LONDON – E.V. Crowe returns to the Royal Court this March to present her newest play Shoe Lady. Directed by Royal Court Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone, the play will star Katherine Parkinson, alongside Kayla Meikle, Archer Brandon, Tom Kanji and Beatrice White.
Shoe Lady will also feature set design by Chloe Lamford, lighting design by Natasha Chivers, composition by Matthew Herbert, sound design by Tony Gayle and movement direction by Sasha Milavic Davies.
Viv has lost a shoe. They’re her work shoes, her weekend shoes, her only pair of shoes, and she doesn’t know what to do. The curtains are falling, her foot is bleeding, and she’s starting to feel a little overwhelmed. But all will be well in the world once she finds that missing shoe.
“It’s incredibly hard isn’t it. To stay afloat.
It’s incredibly hard not to sink to the bottom.”
Shoe Lady runs from 4th to 21st March 2020 at the Royal Court Theatre, London. Tickets available here
