Gazebo Theatre present WANTED!

March 14 and 15

Directed by Tonia Daley-Campbell

In the midst of a time of uncertainty, division and political unrest, a young woman wrestles with her own isolation and call to respond……

WANTED!  explores the stories of 5 extraordinary ordinary women who share a passion for standing up for what is right!  

This powerful new play features an array of historical figures; Irena Sendler, who rescued more than 2,500 children from the Warsaw ghetto during the Nazi occupation; Olive Morris, British Black Panther and avid activist for women and squatters’ rights; Phoolan Devi, the fearsome Bandit Queen, and  Dr James Barry, a woman way ahead of her time.

Written by Tonia Daley-Campbell, Therese Collins and Gazebo Artistic Director, Pamela Cole-Hudson, WANTED is played out in Gazebo’s inimitable style; powerful drama littered with humour, honesty and heart.

Ray,Hull Truck), Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Award (India) winner Rukmini Sircar, Gazebo Artistic Director Pamela Cole-Hudson and April Nerissa Hudson (BBC Doctors, Man Like Mobeen, Robin Hood- Derby Theatre)
