The Everyman Outdoors at Elizabeth Fort
The Everyman presents Charolais by Noni Stapleton as part of The Everyman Outdoors at Elizabeth Fort programme.
Charolais takes the age-old story of female jealousy and gives it a new twist: the other woman is cow, a literal one, a purebred Charolais (French) heifer.
Noni Stapleton plays Siobhan, whose farmer boyfriend devotes considerable attention to his prize heifer at the expense of his very pregnant and disgruntled girlfriend. Siobhan has developed a homicidal jealousy for this Charolais and is feeling equally murderous towards her snobbish soon-to-be mother in law.
A dark comedy of love and longing: rarely in theatre are the challenges of farming life and the joy of sex expressed so frankly or with such charm.
