Don't Put Your Daughter on the Stage

Presented By Final-year Drama students

About this event

Written by Dr Carolyn Scott-Jeffs, playwright, dramaturg and Creative Writing Lecturer in the School of the Arts, English and Drama, Don't Put Your Daughter on the Stage draws on research into gender inequality by Dr Catherine Rees, also from the School.

This month, the play is perfomed verbatum by final-year Drama students. Drawing on topical issues to highlight issues of sexism within the theatre industry, it follows the stories of daughters, mothers, and theatre professionals involved in a theatre academy.
