Toi Whakaari presents both our cast recordings of Women Beware Women by Thomas Middleton (1657), reconceived by Fiona Samuel (2020) and directed by 2015 NZ Arts Foundation Laureate, Sara Brodie - designed, created and managed by Toi Whakaari graduating Arts Management, Design, Set & Props and Costume students while our second year Actors take the stage. Our season was 22-31 October, 2020 at Te Whaea Theatre, Wellington, NZ.
Love is swiftly corrupted and the innocent schooled to survive. A virgin is beguiled into her uncle’s bed, a wife is pawned, and her cuckolded husband is bribed to be a widow’s sugar boy. She who controls their secrets manipulates the game. But the servants see all and the silenced will speak.
There is nothing quite like ‘live’ theatre to bring to life a Jacobean tragedy with all its deadly snares in which destruction plays her triumph.
Learn by me to know your foes!

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
