Hear Her Roar in Newcastle!
Hear Her Roar is a night of new writing from a new North East theatre company, Workie Ticket.
A workie ticket is someone who is always pushing his / her luck, a cheeky troublemaker, and that is what Workie Ticket the theatre company intends to do, to push the boundaries of theatre by:
- Celebrating women's writing and supporting marginalised writers in an equal and respectful working environment.
- Supporting new writing in the North East to reflect its diverse society.
- Creating amazing theatre to encourage discussion and debate in the North East.
- Collaborating with marginalised groups and communities to share their stories.
JoJo Kirtley, the company’s founder, said, “We have a growing number of artists who we are gathering as a creative Workie Ticket collective too. We’re looking forward to building a team and getting to work together.”
Their first project is Hear Her Roar, a night of new plays, at Above the Bridge Hotel pub, Castle Square, Newcastle, at 7:30 on 10 November in aid of Newcastle Women's Aid.
The plays, each ten minutes long, will be performed script-in-hand. They are:
