Splendour archiveKathryn, a photo-journalist is in town to photograph a soon to be deposed dictator. When she arrives at the state residence he is nowhere to be seen and has instructed his wife Micheleine to entertain Kathryn. It soon becomes clear to all that he has fled. Micheleine engages the help of her friend Genevieve, not realising that the secret Genevieve hides puts the blame for the recent atrocities firmly at Micheleine's feet. Outside civil war rages and amidst the looting and rioting in this haven of splendour, both Kathryn and Micheleine see the opportunity for a rather special photo story. As the avenging crowd get closer - hungry for blood - Micheleine offers Kathryn the photo-opportunity of her life - the before and after, the shot that will immortalise Micheleine forever. How could Kathryn refuse? Fast moving, often hilarious, this is a play which makes us think about the nature of women. After all, behind every great man..... The show contains strong language.
