Jane! Jane! Jane!
Written by Salla Viikka
Directed by Sini Pesonen
When the legendary Queen of Aerobics herself, Oscar-winning screen icon Jane Fonda, suddenly appears, in the flesh, things will never be the same for this play’s main character. It’s like God had reached down to pick a poor soul up from the fathoms of a meaningless existence.
Subtly making its way under your skin, this imaginative piece tells the story of a personal breakout from a strange and tangled mess into freedom and action, inspired by an 84-year-old Jane Fonda.
Is it ever too late to reinvent oneself? How could one live even a little bit like Jane Fonda?
”The tone is mostly comic, but when they start digging into female self-hatred and the need to please, the play unearths things that are chillingly recognizable.”
