Revolt. will be a punch in the face wrapped in a satin glove.
"I am Completely Spannering you and I am Jumping you and Hiding you and Chomping down upon you. I am Blanketing and Locking you and Draining The Life of you with my Massive, Structured, Beautifully built, Almighty Vagina.”
Alice Birch skewers the language and semiotics of both patriarchy and feminism in a play which is equal parts belly-laugh funny and gut-wrenchingly real.
Women take their rightful place, centre stage: becoming the aggressor in seductions, demanding what they want from work, and trashing supermarkets and with them the fragile masculine ego.
After premiering at Sydney’s Old 505 Theatre, ‘Revolt’ will come screaming into Adelaide just in time for Feast 2018, to revolutionise how you see feminism and theatre.
"Plays that quicken the pulse are too rare, and Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. certainly does that. It never quite feels truly dangerous or unruly, but this production, directed by Charles Sanders for the independent company House of Sand, exhibits a wild side you don’t often see.." - Audrey Journal
"This is an important work for everyone to see, not just those that are already aware of the need for equality and action but those that may be perpetuating the problems of the patriarchal society, be that male or female. Do not miss this important production." - Broadway World
"This is not a play for the faint-hearted. It makes its points, sledge-hammer like, in a manifesto of language and actions that are aggressively provocative – just as the playwright intended." -Stage Whispers
"The politics in Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. are made compelling by Sanders’ palpable enthusiasm for the subject matter, and their insistence that we hear its messages, translates into excellent drama." - Suzy Goes See
