Our Director has hand selected some of the finest up and coming and established names in new work – and you won’t need to break the bank to see them, as we’re making all these shows PAY WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD. You can get a ticket for any of the Wonderful Wednesdays shows for the princely sum of anything from 15 to zero pounds – whatever works for you.
In 1953 a man wrote a play about waiting. In 1988 he sued five women for trying to perform it. In 2001 Madonna released What It Feels Like for a Girl. It’s 2023 and we’re still waiting. Since Samuel Beckett wrote Waiting for Godot, he and his estate have notoriously challenged – often legally – non-male companies that wish to perform it.
A whip-smart interrogation of gender, authorial copyright and the cultural significance of Madonna’s 1989 album Like a Prayer, Silent Faces return with their trademark style of playful, political, physical theatre.
