The King’s Head Theatre has confirmed it will be presenting a season of work by female playwrights in response to the under-representation of female voices on stage.
Running from the 24th April until the 12th May, the season will include Sarah Milton’s Tumble Tuck, transferring from a critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe 2017 run, with four new pieces by up-and-coming female writers – Instinct Theatre’s mental health drama In The Shadow of the Mountain, showcasing graduating King’s Head Theatre trainee director Helena Jackson in sibling comedy BabyBox, a night of Shakespearean shorts Voices from the Deep, and NOF*CKSGIVEN, the first play by new writer Daisy King.
Talking about the news King’s Head Theatre Senior Producer Louisa Davis said: “We wanted to do something to join the movement of addressing this culture, and support the efforts of so many others around us in giving female voices the spotlight they deserve. We wanted to see a change – so we are doing something about it.”
Who Rules the World? Season will take place at the King’s Head Theatre from the 124th April until the 12th May. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.kingsheadtheatre.com/
