Casting Off stereotypes, three generations of gutsy women tumble, talk, fly, and balance precariously; where the personal is political, the furious is funny, and the acrobatics are downright dangerous. Self-directed, hand-knitted and honouring the life events that get in the way of work, this is a true inter-generational family show; "We took our young tribe along and they loved it. These strong, brilliant women leapt, balanced and flung their way into our hearts" EdFringe audience member.
A fabulously funny, intelligent and profoundly heart-warming show set to a soundscape of the many disparate texts that embody each day.
