A new feminist theatre festival at N16

HerStory social media imageTheatre N16 has created a new two-day festival of women’s work, and stories.

Herstory Festival is a chance for up and coming playwrights and artists to tackle important issues surrounding feminism and by doing so creating a platform for discussion and an opportunity to instigate change. During the two days of the festival Theatre N16 will showcase rehearsed new writing, performance art pieces and solo shows.

It is time to make HERSTORY, not history.

From a one woman verbatim piece about her grandmother’s life in Ghana, to a two-hander about the male and female perspective of being a victim of sexual assault, to a short comedy about objectification; this two-day festival is going to be full of diversity and talent. It will also be a great chance of starting a discussion regarding the subjects of female equality and the under-representation of women in the arts industry.

6-7 August at Theatre N16
Starts 7pm
Day tickets £7 / Weekend tickets £10
The Bedford, 77 Bedford Hill, Balham, SW19 9HD
