How does a Snake Shed its Skin?
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Margaret Thatcher is on a diet. Virginia Woolf is in a bucket. Marilyn Monroe is reading the dictionary. So what is this woman doing with her head in a filing cabinet? A show about definitions and diagnoses created from the diaries, letters and to-do lists of this peculiar trio. Written and performed by Susanna Hislop and directed by Anna Ledwich. Developed with support of BAC, Yard Theatre and National Theatre Studio. Masterful... Switches deftly between the tragic and comic (Pick of the Fringe, Observer on Slip of Steel's first show).
