Giving Into Light
is a solo performance piece by Alison Wearing, author of the
internationally bestselling travel memoir
Honeymoon in Purdah – an Iranian Journey.
By turns comical and deeply moving, this monologue tells a woman’s story of ‘post-partum illumination’ following the
birth of her first child. Her attempts to understand this heightened
perception of the world (contrasted with hilariously-rendered scenes
of sleep-deprivation and fluorescent-lit church basement playgroups)
lead her on an intuition-inspired journey to a village in Mexico, a
place where the everyday and the fantastical converge.
