The F Words is about a woman’s unrelenting compulsion to explore self image and feeling lost by delving into topics like ageism, fattism, sexuality, self worth, spirituality, and female friendship. Unabashed, bitter-sweet, comedy, intermingled with an exploration of how words and our relationship to them shapes, holds, imprisons or releases us.
The F Words features the ferociously fearless talent of Yvette Dudley-Neuman who will be sharing her new work at the Edmonton and Vancouver Fringe Festivals.
The script, generated from her passion, is part auto-biographical, part research, and part whimsical fantasy. She’s excited by the opportunity to give voice to an under represented portion of older women, missing from the Canadian and International theatre mosaic by sharing The F Words with an audience who will embrace the main character, Fran, because they know and are “her”.
This is not to exclude the male population, feedback from public readings revealed that this script resonates significantly with men, who expressed their emotional engagement and relation to topics of body image, ageism and isolation.
Dudley-Neuman is an award winning Actor, Singer, and Writer, committed to exhibiting new and established Canadian works that encourage opportunities for Canadian artists to share and hone their talents. Yvette has appeared in many films and theatre projects (www.tteeVy.com). As the Creative Director of tteeVy enterprises, Yvette began writing to channel her artistic fervour between acting gigs. Her passion for words bourgeoned into songs, poems, several plays, short films (Edna Brown, R.E.M.), and twenty-nine historical re-enactment scripts for a museum. She is excited to have three new projects in development.
Yvette thanks husband Trevor, director Maureen Robinson, members of the WET INK COLLECTIVE and Intrepid Theatre for their support which empowered the unleashing of her creative talents on The F Words.
