A monologue exploring the passionate, nomadic life of
cross-dressing adventurer Isabelle Eberhardt.
Isabelle Eberhadt was a defiant cross-dresser, an aristocrat turned vagabond and a sexual libertine who carved a spiritual haven. A brilliant writer, she was compellingly attracted to the Arabian desert where she lived a nomadic existence and died in a flash flood in 1904, aged 27. This is an evocative and passionate exploration of a woman’s quest for self and freedom.
