Three women. A Boomer, a Millennial and the one in the middle.
What do they have to teach each other? Or forgive each other for?
Featuring a brand new mini opera by playwright, poet and spoken word artist Sabrina Mahfouz and composer Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian, alongside unheard dramatic music by women from the last 400 years - Generation is about women and age, what the young owe their elders, and what they’ve been left with. An honest conversation in words and music about time and whether it makes us wiser or kinder.
Made at The Red House and supported by the Ambache Charitable Trust.
