WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE

The Dark Ages. Middle age. "A Certain Age".

As NLT continues to centre the voices of women throughout the centuries, our 45th anniversary season is composed of a quartet of plays featuring mature actresses in roles that challenge and inspire — and celebrate the rich history of the years of work that they have invested in their craft. The women they portray are trapped in societies and constructs that value youth and beauty over wisdom and experience — where a woman "of a certain age" has few choices left to her in order to survive with her dignity, her wealth or her very life. These intimate plays are about the strength of these women, their resilience in the face of ageism and underestimation, and the inner determination to seize their power in the face of their own extinction.

We Had A Girl Before You

“The house loomed above me, towering over the cliff, leaning as though it meant to hurl itself to the crashing sea below. Whisham Manor. Now called…  Desolation.”

A candle-lit recounting of a Gothic tale of suspense and spine-tingling terror…

The Look

“We all like to be looked at, don’t we?”

A training session for Estelle Cosmetics that threatens to go off the rails…

Marilyn was once a celebrity, the original “Estelle Girl” of the Estelle Cosmetics line. Today she is an aged-out supermodel, giving lectures on cosmetics and demonstrating the various “Looks” and fantasy images that she inhabited as the “Estelle Girl”. Over the course of the lecture Marilyn is forced to confront her real self. But can she cope with this new found awareness?
