All About Women

Five life stories, all about women, interweave humor and warmth in this play, offering an opportunity for audiences to resonate with relatable experiences.


Each of the three female members of the cast plays five roles. The play has an unusual structure in which five life stories – all about women – alternate and interweave. One story concerns two sisters who are at loggerheads because of the man they both love – and there is also the question of their mother… The second story is also about two women who are exceptionally close, until their relationship undergoes a crisis when a third woman comes into their lives. Then there is the story of secretaries working for the same firm; about three little girls who go to kindergarten together; and old ladies living in a retirement home. The play had its first night at the Epilogue Theatre in Zagreb in 2000. Since then it has had 54 premieres. Translated into English, Czech, Slovakian, Portuguese, Polish, German, Italian, Russian, Ukrainian, Spanish, Lithuanian, Estonian, Latvian, Romanian, and French.
