    About

    Directed by the new, incoming Bristol Old Vic Artistic Director, Nancy Medina, Fefu and Her Friends invites you into the home of the titular Fefu, sprawled across all corners of the Tobacco Factory Theatres in this one-off, promenade powerhouse of a play that scoops you from room to room as the events of a single, unforgettable day, unfold.

    Written by influential Cuban-American playwright, María Irene Fornés, an all-female group of friends gather at the house of Fefu to rehearse a charity event. Around the day’s main activity, however, the audience drops in on private moments and intimate conversations as the friends talk, flirt, provoke and swap stories, simultaneously unpacking and retreating from their shared understanding of womanhood and female friendship.

    A game-changing forerunner for immersive theatre, Fefu and Her Friends comprises a glorious exploration of humanity, friendship and femininity that is as audacious and ambitious as it is enigmatic, witty and welcoming; and all spun from the imagination of a director at the height of her powers.


    Fefu and Her Friends is performed by graduating students of Bristol School of Acting.
