Feminist theatre festival takes over Nottingham Playhouse
After the huge success of their first festival at Nottingham Playhouse in 2018, The Party Somewhere Else are presenting another celebratory week of world-class theatre, dance, poetry, workshops, comedy and cabaret created by women and non-binary artists.
This independent collective of creatives are taking over Nottingham Playhouse again, and the stages and spaces will be exploding with excitement, energy and equality – fuelled by the power of story, theatre, art and debate.
Highlights of 2019’s festival include Ladykiller by The Thelmas, which had a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and won the Pleasance Award at Vault Festival; Greyscale by Anonymous is a Woman, an intimate site-specific experience examining dating in a post #MeToo era; and The Question, an improvised musical by Pippa Evans (The Showstoppers, Radio 4).
The festival will also include a free Open House event which will be a space for discussion and debate as well as previews of work in progress; and a cabaret and afterparty in Playhouse Bar and Kitchen on Saturday 18th May with circus and walkabout performers. The festival closes on Sunday with Feminists Don’t Wear Pink, a live podcast discussion on Nottingham Playhouse main stage.
