The first in a series of performative workshops to re-imagine the iconic Suffrage play A Pageant for Great Women, will commence on the 9th February 2019. A new project by Post Workers Theatre, Tomorrow’s Great Pageant will be re-written for a 21st-century non-binary context.
Join us at The Place Bedford to co-author a new script that comments on gender and freedom today. Participants will work with forum theatre techniques, performers and contemporary forms of media, to collectively develop a new cast and agenda for the roles of ‘Justice’, ‘Woman’ and ‘Prejudice’. A reading of the original script will be followed by discussions and collective brainstorming, working with actors, activists and designers to creatively engage with hopes, fears and ideas of alternative narratives.
As part of The Place Bedford’s LGBTQ+ season in February 2019, this is a project by Post Workers Theatre in collaboration with The Place Bedford and Bedford Creative Arts.
