About This Script

At a time of schisms within feminism, where sirens are the soundtrack to our newsfeeds, This Script combines poetic memoir with a fierce call for empathy.

With Jenny Lindsay’s trademark wit and lyrical dexterity, this is a show delving into often turbulent contemporary waters with an ultimate striving for understanding, empathy and action. From #MeToo to ageing in a gendered world: can she rewrite this script? Can you?

Age 16+,

2-for-1 days Mon 5 & Tue 6 Aug

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for This Script are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
