About the Show/Event
Information for Pauline at Pleasance, Inner London (Play). Sophie Bentinck makes work about hair, suicide and taxi journeys. Her shows feel like children whispering under a table at a grown-up party, sunrises and men in eyeliner. Her writing is brave, sensitive and brutally honest. Pauline is a funny heart-warming journey of personal-discovery about the grandmother Sophie never knew. Sophie introduces us to her mum, via frank recorded interviews and her grandmother, Pauline through extracts from Pauline's diaries. Pauline is a rare, intimate and salacious glimpse into this family of 3 women spanning 100 years. Somewhere between âWho do you think you are' and trying on your mum's high heels, Pauline will make you want to dig a little deeper into your own family history and to get on the blower to your nearest and dearest. So, join Sophie as she boldly asks...Mum, can we talk about this? Downstairs
