1971. Paris, France. A young woman faces a choice.

Will she use her influence as a pop music sensation to speak out about women’s rights, or keep quiet to save her career?

YOSIS Theatre Company presents

A Voice

written and performed by Anne Bertreau

4-6 May 2019 at The Nest at The Warren, Brighton Fringe

18-26 August 2019 at C Cubed, Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Director: Julia Stubbs. Creative Consultant: Rhonda Carlson. Music by Daisy Chute.

At the 2018 Brighton Fringe, Julia saw the new play Behind Our Skin, written and performed by sisters Anne and Sophie Bertreau. Produced by their theatre company YOSIS, the piece was an insightful and moving portrait of two very different women that also explored identity, race, and immigration. From watching the play, it was clear to Julia that the Bertreau’s were extremely talented artists with whom it would be great to work in future.

Then in early April 2019 in London, Julia saw the new production from YOSIS – A Voice, written and performed by Anne Bertreau. Having not worked with a director on the piece, Anne approached Julia to collaborate with her and direct the play for its upcoming performances at the 2019 Brighton Fringe and beyond that, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.

REVIEWS for A Voice

★★★★ ‘superbly performed… Anne Bertreau plays Angele with a wide-eyed credulousness that is filled with pathos… her physical vulnerability is captured as she changes from one glittery dress to the next, pale and exposed’

The Guardian

★★★★ ‘it’s a challenging show with a nuanced and powerful solo performance, which looks to the past to reflect issues that are still very much in evidence in show-business today. This is a voice that is often lost in the glitz and glamour of the music industry, but it is one that deserves to be heard.’

FringeGuru

★★★★ ‘Anne Bertreau is beguiling in her role’

The Upcoming

‘Anna Bertreau performs her own script with an urgent sensitivity’
