Synopsis


Set in an ethereal and atmospheric "nowhere land," a grandmother and her granddaughter are tasked with patching a hole in the border.


As they weave it closed, two women appear on the other side, hoping to get through.


The women must come face to face with each other as opinions change and loyalties switch.


'The Net' looks to challenge prejudice and preconceived ideas about refugees and the plight of people displaced by armed conflicts.


It brings a new dimension to the age-old story of war by placing women at the centre, while exposing how utterly foolish the divides we create are.


An ensemble piece that aims to highlight women of all different backgrounds and ages - from 16 to 70 - the play uses the personal stories of these four women and their interactions with each other to interrogate larger political themes, and the story of The Net is recognizable in any and all nations currently in conflict on their borders.
