Barossa Arts and Convention Centre
Written By: Maureen Duffy
Directed By: Jo Hough
The play takes place in a woman’s public restroom and has an all female cast. The characters are representative working class women of London, including the restroom manager and attendant, three office workers and two widows in their sixties. The action and dialogue reveal the anger and resentment the women feel toward men in their romantic and sexual relationships and at work.
Rites was written at a time when the women’s liberation movement of the1960s and 1970s was gathering strength. Like the women’s movement, the play exposes the stifling effects on women of gender stereotypes at many levels of society.
