Past Shows

We're proud to have produced over 20 short plays within our first year and to have told previously unheard stories. Our writers explored a range of themes such as the side effects of the contraceptive pill, the experiences of a Tawaif during the Indian War of Independence and female body image. We've been featured in The Stage, on BBC Radio London and DIVA Magazine said you should *probably* spend your International Women's Day with us. Take a look at our past shows...
