The How and the Why was an emotionally powerful experience, with both the writing and the performances deep and riveting. How and why do women attempt to balance their professional ambitions, family and relationships? This play digs into these questions while proffering scientific theories on menstruation. The answers, in the end, are not the point of the discussion. There is more at stake in our own identity than the how and why of our gender.
Aenigma Theatre brought together a group of talented women to produce this play and it shows. Every moment was absorbing and significant to the story.

The How and the Why by Aenigma Theatre is playing at Studio 1398 until 17 November 2018. Tickets at:
