Revolt Ed2016

There are rules that we all adhere to. Rules for what we say. For our bodies. Rules that we don’t even think about. But what’s stopping us from actually breaking these rules? What stands between us and changing the way things are? This is exactly what Alice Birch looks at in ‘Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again’. The Royal Shakespeare Company take on this elusive new writing, with four daily extraordinary performances. This is a challenging seventy minutes, but so worth it. A frank exploration of the constraints of being a modern woman, and what would happen if we rebelled against them. With slick staging, a bold, experimental style and some brilliantly clever writing, this is a show you won’t want to miss.

Traverse Theatre, until 28 Aug.
