From women’s eyes this doctrine I derive:
They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;
They are the books, the arts, the academes,
That show, contain and nourish all the world.
William Shakespeare, Love’s Labour’s Lost
During the wake after the passing of a dear friend, a group of women start to pack up her attic where they find memories of the lives they’ve shared. As they sift through the books, photos and debris, they relive, commemorate, grieve and, above all, play.
Built from over twenty canonical pieces, From Women’s Eyes celebrates and explores the relationships women have with each other and the world around them through some of the best of Shakespeare’s female characters.
Based on the works of William Shakespeare
