When? Tuesday 30 January 2018 @ 7pm

Cost? RSVP using the Eventbrite page is required for confirmed admission. There will be a suggested £3-£5 donation on the door (to cover event costs)

Persistent & Nasty is a platform with a focus on the voices of female-identified humans working, writing, and performing in the stage and screen industry. It was born from the frustration and anger of four actresses/writers, fed-up with the treatment of women across the industry; from the lack of profile female writers get, to the way that women are treated in the casting process.

All are welcome to this first event in our Persistent & Nasty series (men/male-identified people are encouraged to join us too).

HOW THE EVENT WILL WORK

The format of the evening is in two parts. First there’ll be a rehearsed reading of a piece of writing for theatre or film by a female-identified writer. This will be followed by an open forum discussion with an invited industry guest, addressing any issues the work points to and that affect women on a cross-industry level. Audience members will be encouraged to take place in this debate.

The industry guest for our first discussion is Sandy Thomson of Poorboy Theatre.

Our goal is to create an event that is safe and supportive, but that is also an act of protest. We’ve reached a tipping point in our culture where misogyny and the silencing of marginalised voices will no longer be tolerated. The event will be recorded for an accompanying podcast that will serve as documentation of our thoughts, ideas and grievances. We intend to be heard.
