Our friends over at the very excellent gender equality arts magazine Female Arts present an evening of exciting work-in-progress short plays, comedy and performance, on Sunday 23 November. Female Arts Scratch includes rehearsed readings of new work from associate artists The Minty Crimples and The Thelmas. Also from Mind Your Head and SYS theatre. New writing from Shapour Bernard, Serena Haywood, Naia Headland-Vanni, Sophie Porter, Effie Samara, Amie Taylor and Wendy Thomson. Comedy from Carmen Ali and Lotta Quizeen.
Female Arts was founded in 2011 at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. This is their first production featuring work from their talented review team who are also playwrights, directors, actors, theatre-makers, comedians and artists, striving to improve the representation of women on stage and screen.
“Statistics show that for every 3 men on stage, there is 1 woman. We’re reversing that trend, until we get to gender-equality on stage!”
