The Shrill Voices Residency is a brand new programme designed to kickstart fresh work by female writers.
Join us on the 30th and 31st March to see snippets of these four exciting new plays.
Gobby by Jodie Irvine
Bri is learning to love herself, and she’s sharing her story through the revisiting of several parties from her life. It’s a darkly comic telling of survival, and a lesson in how to throw a really good party.
It Kind Of Looks Like A Doughnut by Holly Boyden
Two girls, one kind of a lesbian, one kind of a liability have grown up in a Brexit-voting town where the Miners’ Welfare has been turned into a Londis and the buses run once an hour. This is kind of their story; a girls’ eye view of sexuality, sexual health and friendship tied up in some of the most ancient wisdoms we have.
Like Mother, Like Daughter by Anja Kulessa
Emma is getting married. She couldn’t be happier. But when her estranged older sister returns home after 10 years, disrupting the lives built in her absence, Emma starts to question everything. In a family that used to leave things unspoken, it is finally time to talk…and find out whether forgiveness is possible.
Goodnight and Good Morning by Naomi Westerman
Goodnight and Good Morning is a one-woman show following Jane, a neurodiverse young woman’s journey to her late mother’s homeland, to scatter her ashes and try to learn more about her. But Jane is distracted by a growing relationship with the sweet, possibly gay man she met when she was at her lowest point. Is it possible to find love after death?
