For several years, we've been treated to a mini-quake of interesting Feminist-with-a-capital-F theatre works that break the fourth wall, refuse traditional plotting and experiment with sound, light and smearing food through one's hair.

Auteur/performer Julia Croft (If there's not Dancing…, Power Ballad, Plastic Orgasm) is a driving force, while auteur/director Eleanor Bishop (Jane Doe) is also a leading light.

In short, this is an assured team with game, form and a strong vision.
