THREE fascinating one-woman shows are due to be performed as part of The Cubed Series at the Tobacco Factory Theatre in Bristol.

Vanity Bites Back, And Now: The World! and Portrait all explore the identities of different young women in a contemporary society.

Vanity Bites Back – the first in the series – is a show about anorexia, attention seeking and finding the freedom to bite back at the stigma surrounding mental illness.

And Now: The World! will be the second show, and explores the concept of a digital world. It looks at how human relationships are sacrificed by those we build online.

The final play, Portrait, provides a frank but funny look at life through the eyes of a young black woman, looking at themes of sexism, class, identity and race.

Vanity Bites Back will be at the theatre from today (Thursday) until tomorrow (Friday). And Now: The World! will run from Monday until Wednesday and Portrait will be the final show of the series, from November 5-7. Performances of all three plays will start at 8.15pm each night.

Tickets to all three shows, priced £15-24, or tickets for each individual show, priced £8-12, are available from the box office on 01179 020344 or online via
