Sphinx Theatre Company Women Centre Stage Festival 2016

Sphinx Theatre presents WOMEN CENTRE STAGE: POWER PLAY a festival celebrating women on stage from the 14th – 20th November at Hampstead Theatre and The Actors Centre. A pioneering festival including workshops, discussions, live performances and new plays from some of the country’s leading names and most exciting new talents creating more and better roles for women.

“The festival encourages writers to think women into the centre of their stories, to ascribe them agency and to create significant relationships between female characters.” – April de Angelis

“It’s almost a century since women won the vote yet inequality still prevails. Women are vastly underrepresented in theatre; Sphinx’s festival will be a fantastic and essential celebration of the female mind and voice.” – Rebecca Lenkiewicz
