Part of The Party Somewhere Else Festival

The Party Somewhere Else throw parties for ALL, full of theatre, arts and inspiration for ALL, and we’d love you to join the conversation.

This is your chance to see exciting new performances in development, meet the women that created them, and get involved in discussions about the voices that want to be heard, the stories that need to be told, and the audiences who are ready to listen.

Watch, mingle, listen, laugh, and cry if you want to.

Performances include: an adaptation of an Austen novel with pop music, empire lines, and lots of rain sound effects; a play about five young women from London, and their journeys to self-love and celebration of themselves; and the first chance to see new work from the award-winning writer of Ladykiller!

PLUS! A talk from Oyinkansole Adebayo – the founder of Niyo Enterprise, an organisation that
uses creative tools such as innovative afro-hair for female economic empowerment.

Come join the Party!

IMPORTANT: This event is split into two halves and only 40 free tickets are available for each half. You are welcome to book tickets for and attend both.

If you book a ticket and can no longer attend, please let us know so we can pass your ticket onto someone else. We want to make this event as accessible for as many people as possible so please help us make sure no-one misses out.

Open House Part 1: Midday – 1.45 pm

“Open your mouth joyfully wide and roar”

Inside Voice – Madeline Gould

This is a work-in progress from award-winning playwright Madeline Gould, writer of Ladykiller.

An intimate and universal play about finding your voice and having the confidence to use it, this will be the first ever showing of a play that ultimately aims to invite you to open your mouth joyfully wide and roar.

14+ some sexual content and reference to mental health.

Sensibility – Happenchance Theatre

Elinor and Marianne. Their father died, their mother’s a mess, they have no money or accomplishments,
and they’ve fallen in love with men they can’t have. Do they go after them? Do they get over it? Or do
they sit and wait for the men to change their minds?

Happenchance presents an adaptation of Austen’s beloved novel, an ode to Little Mix, and a celebration
of the sisters who have been with you the whole time. Expect pop music, empire-lines, and lots of rain

“Had me roaring with laughter one minute and close to heartbreak the next.” Number 9 reviews.

Extracts will be followed by Q and A, discussion and networking.
