Untitled Women written by Haresh Sharma, directed by Alvin Tan

This production wrapped together both Untitled Women and Untitled Cow Number 1, with the cow first and women second.

The bulk of the reviews handle the Loss/Grief side of the stories, while neglecting the Freedom elements. In the first play, the cow ties herself down, and in the second the women are trapped by their own volition. And so we wait for them to drop their burdens and run towards life.

In the post-show Q & A, one of the actors let it slip that they viewed one of two trapped females as never being able to get out. While realistic, it's jarring because the whole set design is a minimalist switchback path leading up a mountain, that all the characters seem to climb.

Though perhaps not all of them, actually.
