The Show

Four Glasgow writers join Falkirk poet Janet Paisley in a dramatic presentation of their own work. The Killing of Women examines several small deaths brought about by self, friends, family, employers, strangers and lovers while tracing a tragic narrative of ultimate loss. Through poetry and monologues, the writers tell a story that is recognisably relevant to the lives of contemporary women and men. Sometimes humorous, often disturbing, it is a study of corrupted relations between the sexes.
