As its title alludes, SHOE LADY is a play which revolves around a woman (Viv, played by Katherine Parkinson) who is impacted by footwear — most especially, the loss of one half of a pair of shoes. Unfortunately, it is her only pair of shoes, so the loss assumes a profound significance and the results, whilst often comic, are ultimately calamitous.

The play, the playwright, the players and the director, are all possessed of proven pedigrees. So why doesn’t this re-imagining of Caryl Churchill’s groundbreaking 2002 exposé of cloning, feel more substantial and relevant?
