further information

In The Golden Nootebook, Anna Wulf, a single Anna Freeman, tries to contain the chaos of her soul and the feeling of being about to break into a thousand pieces by writing down what happens to her in four different notebooks. In the black noteook he writes about his activity as a novelist, recalling his life experiences in childhood and youth in Rhodesia (present-day Zimbabwe), which are the material of his writing (the 'Sources') and ironically about the avatars of his work in the publishing and television industry (the 'Money'). The red notebook reflects his anguished militancy in the Communist Party, just in the years when Stalin’s death allows the barbarity of his regime to begin to come to light, and in which the ubiquitous nuclear threat oppresses any dream of the future. The yellow notebook is the draft of a new novel that recreates her own love life, marked by a radical commitment to sexual freedom. The blue notebook is a diary of the process of piscoanalysis carried out with the therapist who, kindly and mockingly, she calls Mother Sugar. Anna is a brazen, hypersensitive conscience that is desperately trying to record how she lives and suffers and desires a whole generation.

If any one of her works contain the essential elements of the narrative of Doris Lessing (1919-2013), who won the 2007 Nobel Prize for Literature, it is undoubtedly The Golden Notebook of 1962.
The director and playwright Carlota Subirós, who has already investigated the Lessing universe with the production of Jugar amb un tigre [Play with a Tiger] in 2008, has delved into the plot of Free Women and at the centre of the production she places the fundamental role of a woman who at a time of severe political and personal crisis, ceaselessly fights for her integrity as a single mother, as a committed Communist, as a lover who is seeking a healthy and non-sexist relationship, and as an artist. This is an investigation into one’s various personalities that are expressed when writing.

Anne.- I see it more or less like this ... Every so often, maybe once every century, there is a kind of ... act of faith. A whole well of faith is filled, and in a country or another there is a huge movement forward, which represents a huge movement forward for the whole world, because it is an act of imagination ... To extend the limits of the possible, throughout the entire world.In our century, it happened in 1917 in Russia, and in China. Later, that well dries up because, as you yourself have said, cruelty and ugliness have a lot of strength, but the well still slowly refilling. And some day, somewhere else, it gives another push forward, however painful it may be. "
- Doris Lessing (The Golden Notebook, Free Women 2)
