The Arches, Glasgow, Fri 19 & Sat 20 Oct.

The newly established Dzva Theatre is a company the late Sylvia Plath herself might have held close to her heart. Established as an outlet for professional actresses forced to iuggle motherhood and a career. the company has made a fitting choice in the work of one of the 20th century's foremost feminist poets for

its inaugural production.

'l ike many of her great works. it explores scenes of pregnancy. motherhood and loss. which Plath herself experienced and was very much scarred hy." explains producer Viv Devlin. “She was in quite an emotional state of mind when she wrote Three Women. and she loved to write about experiences of childhirth.

and womanhood.‘

Performed in the honeycomhed depths of the Arches theatre. the production focuses upon a theatrical poem. presenting three different outlooks on the experience of maternity. Using multimedia techniques to project the verses upon the set. and taking full advantage of the multi--roomed Arches space. Dzva's production immerses the audience in a hospital ward. an attempt to take the audience on a virtual tour of Platli's world. “Sylvia Plath means a great deal to many women. especially young students. It's a powerful piece of drama. and it's never been performed in Scotland hefoi'e.’ (Olly Lassiiian)
