“We've been searching,

We’ve been at it for months and months

Not quite sure how it started or where it will end

Searching for stories about her

Whoever she might be...”


Endurance is a striking new theatre production that invites audiences to embark on a journey of discovery, one that imagines and recreates the historical and personal stories of Commonwealth sportswomen from across the world.


Created and performed by over twenty women living in Glasgow, Endurance considers the changing role of women in competitive sport, examining what it takes to be the best and why ‘what' you represent matters.


This piece, presented for the first time during Festival 2014 as a co-production with The Arches, has been developed under the Artistic Direction of Catrin Evans with Jennifer Edgar and The Women’s Creative Company.
