Twice Over, Greenside at Nicolson Square ****
The women juggle jobs in a world that, in many ways, seems to have changed for the better, but in others, stills seems to have a long way to go.
Writers Eve Simpson and Jane Prinsley's two-women show, told through poetry, songs and storytelling, pairs the personal experiences of two likeable young characters with the political decisions that underpin these, to highlight the paradox of a society where women can hold the most powerful posts in government but still struggle to compete in a world that unfairly rewards men who are, at best, their equals and, at worst, incompetent.
Capitalism versus community is a conflict the underpins both of the women's words, with the working men's clubs of the 1980s depicted as also defining women's roles, while in 2017 the need to leave a northern home to go and work 'down south' is a familiar story.
