Reading Series

Unheard Womens’ Voices

Theatre has always illuminated many worlds for us but has sometimes struggled to bring to life the voices of women on the margins, disenfranchised women, disregarded women. This year’s Reading Series puts these stories back in the hands of some of Britain’s most exciting female playwrights. All performances at The Theaters at The Drake, 302 South Hicks Street.
