Three women: a Boomer, a Millennial and the one in the middle. What do they have to teach each other? Or to forgive each other for? 

Featuring a brand-new mini opera by playwright and spoken word artist Sabrina Mahfouz and composer and performer Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian – alongside rarely-heard dramatic music by women from the last 400 years – GENERATION is about women and age, what young women 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

Tickets: £12; £10 concessions; £3 student
