Conquest

PearShaped present

CONQUEST

by Katie Caden



A chance meeting in a pharmacy. Alice is looking for the morning after pill. Instead she meets Jo, and is drawn into a world of radical, female activism.

Welcome to Conquest: the world’s first revenge cupcake company.

Following a ★★★★ run at VAULT Festival, PearShaped return with their “timely, humorous look at feminism, period-shaming and the glaring issues of a patriarchal society” (A Younger Theatre)

Described as Fight Club meets Calendar Girls, Conquest is a funny and honest exploration of sexual consent and the minefield of today’s feminism. With sex education repeatedly on the agenda in parliament and evidence of sexual misconduct continually re-surfacing in the media, this is a timely piece reflecting on consent and the inequalities women still face in the bedroom.

“This is a Conquest [people] should be boasting they have seen” (British Theatre Guide)

Conquest is the debut show from PearShaped, developed as part of Soho Theatre’s Writers Lab.
