The Cleansing Of Constance Brown, directed by James Yarker, is one of the most esteemed shows produced by the Stan's Cafe theatre company from Birmingham.
The themes are power, the power of people who inhabit the rooms opening off this corridor, and cleansing, the cleansing of a woman, Constance Brown, who appears to have lived in all ages, both here and around the globe. Each scene and character is presented in highly realised visual detailing of costumes props and acting. The corridor itself with its shifting configuration becomes the 73rd character, blank, often menacing and unpredictable. Scenes intercut and morph into one each other making connections across time and space.
