'In a world saturated with images of unrealistic and unobtainable beauty, how do women see themselves?' Crowning Glory is a new play that explores some of the ways in which mainstream Western definitions of beauty in today's world affects the way women see themselves. It challenges us to question our own personal perceptions of beauty and ask who exactly sets these ideals?
