This play should not be well behaved. - Alice Birch

SEXUAL POLITICS. WORK. MARRIAGE. VIOLENCE. POWER.

REVOLT is not an angry, feminist rage. Like most women, it is much, much smarter than that... 

This high voltage, theatrical hurricane sweeps through, systematically dismantling power structures, ripping to shreds the language, constructs and expectations that have confined women for centuries - leaving in its wake the charred remains of the patriarchal forces that have no place in the century to come.

Subversive, exhilarating, and darkly comic, this theatrical sit-in upends, obliterates and re-frames the feminist debate. It seductively whispers in your ear. It disarms with a razor sharp wit, ravages with its raw emotion and moves with power and truth. 

Witness the professional debut of The Street Company - Canberra's most exciting new talent, taking on Alice Birch's explosive detonation of language, in director Karla Conway's trademark physical style. 

Award-winning playwright Alice Birch is a formidable figure amongst emerging dramatists in the United Kingdom and is often touted as her generation’s Caryl Churchill.  In 2016, Alice was selected as one of the Creative England 50, a shortlist of individuals and companies judged to be the country’s most inventive, innovative and creative minds.

This is the play for our time. You'll either be in the room. Or you won’t...
