This performance will explore the particular way in which women construct and manipulate multiple identities or personae in order to suit their ever-changing social and political circumstances. Told from the perspective of three women, Emily Dickinson (1880s), Simone DeBeavoir (1920s) and Elizabeth Hawes (1940s and 50s).
