Naming The View: A Life Affirming Comedy

On a bench, gazing at the gob-smacking view Kate is unexpectedly joined by an irritating acquaintance from her past.  An awkward conversation slowly reveals why their hopes and dreams never matched their youthful expectations.  

Shakespeare’s The Taming Of The Shrew concludes with a speech by the once feisty Kate declaring unreserved obedience to her newly married husband Pete. Naming the View is a modern-day re-imagining of how, thirty years later, Kate finds the courage to move beyond the shackles of Pete’s coercive control.

Riven with humour and hope Naming the View is a story of rekindled friendship and an emotive insight into the effects of abusive relationships. 

It’s never too late to explore new horizons.
