By Peter John Cooper

Dr Marie Stopes transformed how we think about sex. This first play about her marks 100 years from the publication of Married Love, selected by Melvyn Bragg as one of ‘12 Books that Changed the World’.

The isolated communities of the Isle of Portland on the Dorset coast are shocked to discover the notorious sex campaigner Marie Stopes has bought the Higher Lighthouse.  She hopes it will be her refuge from the storms battering her on the mainland. A collision of cultures is inevitable. How will she change the Islanders’ ways of thinking & how will she be changed by Portland?

One of the 20th Century’s most controversial women, Marie Stopes strong views provided graphic understanding of pleasure & consequence of sex. Vilified then by the Catholic Church, she still provokes today. But apart from her work, who was the real Marie Stopes? Escaping the Storm finds Stopes on the Isle of Portland; writing, exploring fossil forests, skinny-dipping, & interacting with the locals. Fascinating & formidable - Marie Stopes’ complex private world is as controversial as her public one.

An ensemble of four performers - with projected image, Stope’s favourite music; and a few surprises - give life to this pacey, thought-provoking play. The playwright & director Peter John Cooper finds humour and presses all the right buttons revealing the good, the bad, & down-right ugly. Presenting theatre of debate.  There is an optional post-performance Q & A with AsOne.

“AsOne Theatre takes the controversial life of Marie Stopes & slaps you in the face with it. A daring & provocative production which has caused ‘a storm in its own right’.” (Review Chris Aziz - Shelley Theatre, Bournemouth)                

“An informative & stimulating drama… on an extensive national tour into the New Year… definitely an unmissable occasion”. (Marion Cox, - Pennsylvania Castle Gala Preview, Dorset Echo)

An intimate performance Upstairs @ The Ath

It is the 6th of April 1895 and Oscar Wilde waits alone at the Cadogan Hotel. He is awaiting a knock on the door that will bring an arrest warrant with charges of Gross Indecency against him. In this superb one man play Oscar will talk openly about his affair with a young boy of fifteen who’s life will never be the same again. The ruination he has bought down on the head of his wife, Constance and their two boys, and of course the one true love of his life, Lord Alfred ‘Bosie’ Douglas.

Bosie once said to Oscar that when he was not on his pedestal he was boring, in this show Oscar may well stumble from his pedestal but he could never be called boring.
