Theatre503 and SHEWOLVES Productions present
Ever thought you should run the world, even though you’re ‘only fourteen and a girl’?
Priya and Lou have. And they’re ready to bite back against any adult who doubts them. Armed with a backpack full of Pop-tarts and a hunger to tackle climate change, they embark on a covert expedition into the wild.
But when the wilderness closes in around them, can Lou and Priya overcome their differences to make their voices heard?
Somewhere between Booksmart, Little Miss Sunshine and Thelma & Louise, SHEWOLVES is an uplifting, funny and empowering play about forging friendships when you’re a bit weird, the power of hope and the underestimated smartness of teens.
RUNNING TIME: 65 mins, no interval
Both performances will feature a pre-show performance: WOLFPACK (duration: 10 mins).
A pack of local female and non-binary teenagers raise their voices together in an original performance piece. Led by the group and with support from professional theatre artists, WOLFPACK is a howl that demands to be heard.
Led by director Hannah Stone and writer Sarah Middleton, SHEWOLVES Productions are based in the Midlands and make new writing that centres women. We work with professionals and communities to create funny, uplifting plays and projects that tell stories about complex women who have agency within their lives.
SHEWOLVES & the WOLFPACK groups are supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, National Lottery Community Fund, Nottingham Women’s Centre, Leicester Curve and all those who donated via our Crowdfunding campaign.
