Domestic Labour: A Study in Love

War, bicycles and the withdrawal method: Domestic Labour: A Study in Love is a witty investigation of Feminism, love and the very domestic battle over who does the washing up.

Weaving personal details from autobiographical stories with seminal events in European and Iranian contemporary history, Domestic Labour uses humour and a touch of surreal in its unique portrayal of a man’s experience of growing up in the heyday of 70s Feminism.

I think [the bicycle] has done more to emancipate women than any one thing in the world.  I rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a bike.  It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of untrammeled womanhood.

Susan B Anthony, American Civil Rights Leader, 1896.

Commissioned by and developed at The Bush Theatre supported by Cambridge Junction and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
