Bridge Markland expertly juggles classic lines of text and pop music quotes and, in doing so, quite incidentally turns fixed role attributions on their head. In doing so, she moves quickly between performance, puppetry and playback, dusting off classic material for a broad audience. Lessing’s parable about humanity and tolerance places human beings in the focus and not their origin or even their religion - and is thus more contemporary than ever before.
