“Most importantly this play should not be well behaved.”
A non-linear, post-modern manifesto, Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. by Alice Birch (2014) reacts ferociously to different aspects of life as a woman: sex, marriage, work, and family responsibility, to name a few. Radically critiquing our oppression of the feminine voice and body, each self-contained episode connects thematically in a feminist voice, not through tiny steps, but through a rioting race of deconstructing language, symbols, and institutions. In director Sloan Thompson’s able hands, the humour juxtaposes the visceral hit of the text, using our designers’ considerable talents that transform this amazing play off the page and onto the Frederic Wood Theatre stage.
