This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
Produced by live-arts production house Civil Disobedience, Persistent and Nasty is a script-reading, debate and art as activism initiative for the female-identified voice in stage and screen. Although the core principle behind Persistent and Nasty is about the female-identified voice, we are committed to an intersectional approach and aim to use the space we’ve created to provide a platform for the spectrum of marginalised voices in our culture. Through a series of script readings and accompanying digital content, we are creating a platform for the unrepresented voices in the stage and screen industry; women, minorities, trans and LGBTQIA+. Our goal is to create a project that is safe and supportive, but that is also an act of protest. Persistent and Nasty is about changing the cultural narrative through the stories we tell.

“The exchange provided by P&N is electric, reminiscent of the consciousness raising gatherings of the second wave but with a focus on intersectionality that has been sorely missing from so much of the mainstream feminist movement”
Guest speakers for the June edition of Persistent and Nasty are Lesley Hart (actor/playwright) and Nelly Kelly (playwright/performer/theatre-maker). The script is written by Rosanna Scott; an Edinburgh based screenwriter with roots in Johannesburg.
