Cast & Summary
Woman Pat Butler
A risqué adaptation of the short story by Pinter, this monologue is a deep dive into the mind of a businesswoman increasingly aware that her twilight years are now upon her.
As she attempts to make sense of the story of her life, she must confront her loneliness and come to terms with her ultimately doomed attempts to form lasting connections with kith and kin.
Princess Inês Chora
Decades after a catastrophic nuclear conflict between two countries, a woman walks into a newly established Centre for Harmony and Reconciliation set up to facilitate one-on-one encounters between survivors from both countries. Thus begins a delicate unravelling of the myths and legends of wartime to expose a hidden truth even more devastating than the war.
Written and directed by Suresh Nampuri
Music by Íris Virgílio
Film editing by Peter Murphy
