This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
This fierce and playful feminist work explores the psychology of extremism with haunting melodies and progressive punk riffs in an explosive piece of guerilla-gig-theatre.
‘Half Pixies-style rock gig, half angry spoken word, it’s about sexual stereotyping, capitalist alienation and getting your voice heard.’ The Scotsman
I’m not going to tell you her hair colour.
Her skin colour.
Whether she’s got an almond or a heart shaped face.
All you need to know, right now, is that she is a person.
Walking up a street. A street that you know. A street we all know.
Towards a giant, glistening tower.
A giant, glistening shaft.
A shaft that you know.
A shaft we all know.
This performance will be followed by a post show discussion about politics in theatre, chaired by journalist and Scotsman theatre critic Joyce McMillan.
