Description

"The biggest spoken word night in London for women" (Evening Standard) is coming home to the Manchester!

Following our sold-out debut run at Edinburgh Fringe last summer, and ahead of our show at the Royal Albert Hall in March, we're bringing our fierce, fabulous, feminist spoken word showcase back to the North for a monthly residency at our new home, legendary queer haven Tribeca.

Shortlisted for Best Spoken Word Night in the UK (Saboteur Awards, 2017), That's What She Said showcases the best new writing and performance by women, featuring iconic and emerging authors with a mix of performance, poetry, storytelling, slam and more.

LINE-UP FOR THURSDAY 1st FEBRUARY 2018

TORIA GARBUTT

Regular tour support for spoken word legend John Cooper Clarke, Toria Garbutt's unique blend of pure punk heritage and unapologetic spoken word confessions make her one of the most vital and visceral voices in the country. She's performed at festivals including Port Eliot, Latitude and Glastonbury and her phenomenal album Hot Plastic Moon is available from Nymphs & Thugs. Catch her while you can because, we promise, she's going places.

WHAT THEY SAY...

"To put it bluntly, I'd never come across a spoken word night with such a fantastic lineup. 'How have I never come across this before?', I kept asking myself, 'this is everything I've ever wanted from a night out...'

I was blown away. I left feeling inspired, with renewed confidence in my own abilities, and almost missed my tube stop on the way home trying to write down scraps of poetry and prose.

Not only is That's What She Said a great place to see talented literary performers, for everyone and not just women, but it provides a space for women to shout and scream their anger, their frustrations, their desires; a space without censorship, without objectification and without the dreaded “it must be her time of the month” quip. I think For Books’ Sake is doing some really important work." (Recent review of one of our London shows)
