Herald Review for Beverley - A One Woman Show

Beverley - A One Woman Show
Written, directed and produced by Natasha Langridge

Heroine Beverley, played by Valerie Frances, exhibits a kind of Cinderella complex as she swaps broom, pumpkins and glass slippers for sex, drugs and all-night raves. She dreams of trips to the plastic surgeon and illustrious appearances in Hello! Magazine. Pills have lost their potency - where has it all gone wrong?

Running from her own questions, she finds herself at the bottom of a torrid relationship where the question, 'Why am I hitting him?' propels itself to the forefront of her mind. Losing her job gives way to unexpected mystical visions, taking her through the wrong door at the dole office to a surreal landscape of sensual magical fantasy.
