About Bechdel Theatre
Bechdel Theatre use the Bechdel test to talk about gender & representation on stage (The Bechdel test asks: Are there two women? Do they talk to each other about something other than a man?). They are known for their stickers, podcast, and blog, and regularly host and produce events which celebrate and amplify previously underrepresented voices on stage.

Bechdel Theatre workshops are lead by Beth Watson and Pippa Sa, who work as performers, devisers and workshop facilitators alongside their Bechdel-related work. Beth & Pippa will be available after workshops and happy to chat to participants about their wider work, theatre, feminism, or any topics raised in the workshops.

Bechdel Theatre workshops are open to all genders, but have a strong feminist focus, and are aimed at people who feel they’re under-represented on stage. Participants with all levels of experience are welcome: From seasoned theatre professional to complete newbie. You don’t need a qualification to connect and collaborate meaningfully with other like-minded artists.

These workshops aim to be as accessible as possible. If you cannot afford a ticket, or have a question about accessibility or content, please feel free to email anytime on hello@bechdeltheatre.com.
