16 JUN – 9 JUL 2017
A PLAY AS ENERGISED BY HILARITY AS FEROCITY, BY ANGER AS ANGUISH
FEROCIOUS, URGENT ROAR OF YOUNG AND ANGRY FEMINISM
CAPTURES THE FURY OF MODERN WOMANHOOD
Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. is a theatrical assault on the language that has reinforced violence against women* for centuries, and an explosion of what womanhood means in the 21st century.
In a series of equally funny and disturbing events—the everyday is turned upside down, dirty talk is stripped naked, a marriage proposal is interrogated, and nudity is embraced in the dairy aisle—playwright Alice Birch rallies language to revolt upon itself, commanding it to bear arms against the conventions of work, sex, motherhood, aging, and love.
Revolt is a powerful new work of contemporary writing, and a welcome lesson in disobedience—it twists words into action and holds language to account, in an effort to finally make change happen.
* Just look up 'shrill' in the Oxford English Dictionary. Go on.
