A touching and real homage to older women, celebrating the indomitable voice, wisdom and unapologetic passions of dames who defy invisibility.  

Framed by velvet, Jatz crackers and cigarettes, join Maureen in her bohemian living-room for a journey of exquisite storytelling brimming with acerbic life advice, spirited friends now gone and the dauntless potency of limitless imagination. 

With minimal costume or props, writer and performer Jonny Hawkins transforms into Maureen before our eyes in a solo work that relishes the heroic, individual strength of female elders mostly dismissed by society. 

Co-created with director Nell Ranney, and inspired by Hawkins’ real-life friend, a self-described ‘working class glamour queen’, Maureen: Harbinger of Death redefines our concepts of older women, honours the bounties of inter-generational relationships and pays tribute to kindness, individuality and dignity.
