Quick Overview

"We could...say that every mother contains her daughter in herself and every daughter her mother, and that every woman extends backwards into her mother and forwards into her daughter." - Carl Jung

Three incarnations of women: a mother, a daughter and an old crone. A haunting of past, present and future selves. Drawing loosely on the Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone, this poetic text explores the process of individuation, the inevitability of a young girl’s journey into the shadow and into the unknown, of the bonds that connect mothers and children to each other, of loss and the dense beautiful soaring life that we are all travelling through.



“Stirs the soul... astonishing.”Cape Times
“…Encapsulates masterful integration of layered narratives and character dimensions, visceral poetry.” - Malika Ndlovu
“I turned away and she was gone is by no means easy theatre, but it is rewarding. The delightful humour and the relevance of the production, anchored by the millennia of theatre that have come before it, makes this a play worth seeing.” - Izak de Vries,
“An exquisite affair with not a false note.”Diane de Beer, IOL
“Magnificent... a must.”David Fick, Broadway World
“Takes the audience on a journey through emotions from anxiety to euphoria; it’s relatable and taps into the deepest pools of our psyche.” - Megs Kelly, Cue Media
