Deli Meets:  Womxn's Right to Write with 23 and Counting 

Tuesday 23rd April 7-9pm 

Book now 

We will guide participants through writing exercises before inviting them to explore them in collaborative ways.

The writing section of the workshop will encourage the group to write a short 2-hander scene between 2 characters, one of them has to be a womxn (because there are not enough plays with strong and complex female characters!).

Once the writers have explored writing their scenes, we will begin staging some of the texts, guiding them with ways a director may approach the scene. By the end of the workshop participants should have a short piece of work perfect for a scratch night and new contacts to make future creative ventures with.

'Devised using a non-hierarchical approach, Semblance of a Woman defies the constraints of traditional theatrical norms, inviting audiences into an exploration of identity, love, and the essence of individuality that is untouched by the patriarchy.'- Everything Theatre

'Their more abstract conversations feel like the most tender passages of Sarah Kane while Kelly Thurston provides a physical edge. Semblance of a Woman is an enthralling Sapphic piece about the deepest crevices of a queer woman’s internal conflict.'- Indiependent

Isabelle (23andCounting) is currently working as a director in residence at Eltham College.

Isabelle has been working with her 3 friends from the MA course (Reya Muller, Emma Chatel, Kelly Thurston) for about a year, with their separate production company called LowDoor Productions. Although we are 2 separate companies, we believe in the power of story-telling, breaking down archaic hierarchies of a rehearsal room and supporting womxn in the arts.

Last year we did a show at the Camden Fringe called 'Semblance of a Woman' and we are currently applying for ACE funding to stage a Sylvia Plath Radio play called 'Three Women'.
