"Do you know the rules? You must always follow the rules."

Darebin Arts Speakeasy present a Jamaica Zuanetti production, as a part of the 2017 Melbourne Fringe Festival

Too Ready Mirror
Written by Jamaica Zuanetti
Directed by Rachel Baring

"Do you know the rules? You must always follow the rules."

Three overlapping worlds. Four trapped women.

In 17th century London, Nell pleases audiences and the King to keep her place. In present day Melbourne, Ruby performs for camera clicks and the love of Mars. In the future, the Institution tells Lily and Alma to be good girls, to stay safe and never escape.

Too Ready Mirror; a play about sex and power. About performing. About succumbing. About resisting.

A  Melbourne-based writer and performer Jamaica Zuanetti, graduated with a Master of Writing for Performance from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2015. Currently a playwright in residence with Lonely Company, Too Ready Mirror will be her first full length play. A powerful exploration of female sexuality and empowerment across generations, not to be missed.
