Bechdel Theatre Festival Launch

On Sunday March 20th at Above The Arts Theatre, in association with Anonymous Is A Woman Theatre Company, Bechdel Theatre celebrated great women in theatre with a one-off evening of scenes that ace the Bechdel Test.

Performances included brand new scenes by Sabrina Mahfouz and Hollie McNish, and Abi Zakarian, an extract of the seminal play ‘Her Naked Skin’ by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, and scene from this year’s VAULT festival hit, ‘Skin A Cat’ by Isley Lynn.

The evening, and plans for Bechdel Theatre Festival, were covered in The Stage newspaper.
