The first autobiography in the English Language was written by mother of fourteen, Margery Kempe, who couldn't read. Dame Julian, the renowned anchoress of Norwich, penned writings on mysticism and mercy that have dazzled spiritualists for centuries. Both women went their own way. Both of them loved Jesus, from the depths of their soul, to the tingling of their bodies. Both of them cried, one hell of a lot.
Queynte Laydies are proud to bring their inaugural production to VAULT Festival 2015. Written and performed by Máirín O'Hagan & Sarah Anson, Marge & Jules resurrects the historic moment where - as writings record - Margery met Julian. As spiritual enlightenment meets the darker stories of life in the Middle Ages, these women confess all; talking faith, life, after-life, semantics, erotics and the mysteries of the Man they love. Produced by Boireannach and directed by Andrew Brock.
