Women In Power

Saturday 8th - Saturday 29th September 

Based on The Assembly Women by Aristophanes

Created by an Assembly of Women

Directed by Blanche McIntyre

Casting by Annelie Powell CDG

Suggested age: 12+

At NST City.

390 BC. Athens.

The country is in political turmoil. Recent wars and alliances have left Athenians no options and ready to take the most extreme action. The most radical. A government of women.

Praxagora masterminds and leads a daring coup d’etat, outlining her utopian vision of total equality to her crowd of cross-dressing collaborators. A world where power imbalance is eradicated and with it, debt, greed, theft, and…also marriage, love and consent. Oh, and camping.

NST Associate Blanche McIntyre (Tonight at 8.30, Noises Off, NST, The Norman Conquest, Chichester Festival Theatre and Titus Andronicus, RSC) returns to Southampton to direct this raucous comedy with songs, dance, music and women taking the lead.
