•• The Refuge Woman ••

2 September 2018

Cash has lived in 13 women’s refuges in the UK. She is a self-confessed refuge connoisseur. She knows the refuges with the best counsellors, clothing donations and the ones closest to the heartiest of ‘all you can eat’ buffets.

Now she’s just set foot in what she has decided is her final refuge. It’s run by a woman with a Farage tattoo and is located opposite the Bernard Matthews factory – it isn’t exactly how she imagined escaping from abuse, but now she has a young daughter to consider she’s out of options.

Inspired by real life events, this darkly humorous, spoken-word performance provides snapshots of life in a women’s refuge, as Cash attempts to rebuild her life from scratch in a world where an Argos suitcase contains everything they need to start again.

The performance will be followed by a talk with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, a local journalist and experts about funding cuts to local refuges across Cumbria.
