Between life and death, they are forced to perform an unflattering script of their lives again and again by the voice of a malicious overseer.

But scripts can always be rewritten.

Women of the Mourning Fields is being performed three times at the Pauper's Pit in Underground Venues, on Monday July 13 at 4.15pm, Wednesday July 15 at 5.30pm or Thursday July 16 at 7pm.

Tickets can be booked at 2015.underthefringe.com/shows/mourning-fields.
