Takeover Season

Sorry no results avaiable at this time.

THE SPACE IS YOURS

Monday 3rd - Saturday 8th February

THE SPACE IS YOURS

Join us in The Bunker every afternoon to play, make music, rehearse plays, have meetings or write (on the walls and on your laptops). Every room in the theatre is available including the dressing room, the Writers' Snug, the bar and of course the theatre. 


Each evening there will be a drink and a useful talk and Q&A about something that could help tangibly with putting on shows at the fringe and the wider theatre world and at lunch there will be a smaller version of the talk, for those of you that have limited time.

Everywoman is a deep and dirty dive into being a woman, the danger of autobiography and the existential threat of motherhood. A one woman play by... anonymous. Everywoman will be accompanied by five brand new 'confessions' on parenting and identity.
