Mythic mayhem! Tales to make you want to rip up the rule book and riot.
We bring you glittering pound-shop prizes, a human clap-o-meter and total power. Who will you crown Supreme Giver of Absolutely None? Stand-up tale-tellers slam down the stories, with an MC to keep things clean.
Brace yourselves for no-holds-barred tales to make you want to rip up the rule book and riot! Women around the globe are hitting the headlines standing up to abuse of power, and calling out inequality. We began tweeting one another the names and images of inspiring super-women who stalk through the world’s myths and legends.
Excited by what we found, we dug deeper. Many were new to us – side-lined and almost forgotten. No longer! From Magyar domestic warrior and Irish pirate queen, to naughty Greek pig-wife belly goddess, Japanese Sun deity, and Sumerian sword-wielding nemesis, we present myths and legends of females outgunning adversity. Wielding wit, brains, cunning, courage, righteous rage and the occasional superpower, these imperfect women embody what can be achieved when we give absolutely no fucks.
A celebratory, inspiring night meant for men as much as women. Every night features a different guest performer, and a new mix of stories. No two nights the same!

COVID SAFETY MEASURES
All Spielman Theatre performances are currently sold with unreserved seating and only a slight reduction in capacity. Apart from at guaranteed socially distanced performances, it is therefore likely that you will be sat directly next to other groups. There will be a range of measures that enable your safe journey throughout the building and in the auditorium, and we will guarantee at least one socially distanced performance per week for all shows with a run of at least five performances.
