Female Arts Scratch!

Following our co-production in March at the Woman of the World festival, Southbank Centre, this is our first solo showcase of the work of our wonderful review team! . Female Arts Scratch includes rehearsed readings of new work from our associate artists The Minty Crimples and The Thelmas. Also featuring work from Mind Your Head and SYS theatre. New writing from Shapour Bernard, Serena Haywood, Naia Headland-Vanni, Sophie Porter, Effie Samara, Amie Taylor and Wendy Thomson. Comedy from Carmen Ali and Lotta Quizeen.

Female Arts was founded in 2011 at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Our talented review team are also playwrights, directors, actors, theatre-makers, comedians and artists striving to improve the representation of women on stage and screen.

Statistics show that for every 3 men on stage, there is 1 woman. We're reversing that trend, until we get to gender-equality on stage!
