Woven Voices presents BRUISES by Nadia
Jean Claude Fall
Fallen gymnast Banana and sex worker Jackie have
been best friends for ten years and have gotten
nowhere. One day, Jackie meets Mona, a high-class
pimp who promises her the world. Left behind, Banana
decides to give love a try and moves in with
high-achieving lawyer Justin. As both young women
attempt to start afresh, life insists on making it
quite impossible for them to stay apart.
Nadia Cavelle’s debut play is a playful yet
thought-provoking dramedy about identity and
sexuality. It explores the still hugely taboo topic
of sex work in the hope of opening up a more
informed and compassionate dialogue.
The cast includes Kirsty Rider, Eva-Jane Willis
,Michael Edwards, Lily Knight, James Barnes and Toby
About the Company
Woven Voices seeks to utilise the transformative
power of the performing arts to:
• Embrace the diversity and complexity of
individuals outside of binarisms, and to reach
people currently marginalised by existing social
categories – be these ethnic, national, sexual,
gendered, religious, cultural, social or other.
• Further of the voices of cross-cultural and
otherwise ‘mixed’ individuals.
• Promote these values through the practitioners
involved, the stories told, and the audiences
• Reinvest revenue from projects to support the
individuals whose economic and social outlooks have
been limited by social categorisation.
