Temporarily Yours

Italian actress and writer, Greta Zampi has created an incredibly engaging show in Temporarily Yours that is thought-provoking and emotional theatre at its best.

Thought-provoking and emotional theatre at its best

Based on true stories from different prostitutes and in part adapted from two monologues by Concita De Gregorio created from the blog of an escort. Greta began by thoroughly doing her homework and interviewing real life escorts, taking down their stories and turning them into theatrical tales which she performs very naturalistically.

The show is in essence a selection of interwoven stories from different sex workers, ranging from the high class escort who has her own secretary and a poor unfortunate girl who works from the side of the road. Greta deals with her subject beautifully and creates a show which is factual, emotional, full of character and at times distressing. The show is important as it highlights the perils of sex workers, breaks through misconceptions of women who work in this field and ultimately makes us challenge our own opinions on the subject.

Greta has created a human story that shines a light on a subject often regarded as taboo and presents it in such a human way that it easily brings a tear to the eye. Right from the moment she steps on stage we are in her world and will follow her to the end without question. This may not be easy viewing, but it is a production that should be seen. Greta is using art to make a difference in this world and we could do with more works like this.

The simple set design of a few props and costumes allows us to enter this world fully, but never detracts from the realism of the characters. At points Greta draws audience members into the performance as characters coming to see her sex workers. By making us clients she brings us into her world. It’s a harrowing story, that flows by virtue of the quality of the writing and the level of performance

She is believable and human and plucks at our heart strings effortlessly. This is a wonderful production and highly recommended.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

The Blurb

A journey into sexuality and prostitution, encountering dynamics that connect more to our lives than we'd expect. Why does one sell their body nowadays? Is it out of constraint or out of choice? And does society help us to perceive our body as an object or as an integral part of ourselves? From two monologues by Concita De Gregorio (Ed Einaudi), created from the blog of an escort and by direct contact with trafficked women. A show about our bodies, our souls and our relationships. I behave like a whore, I am not a whore.
