Persistent and Nasty
A script reading and debate series for the female-identified voice in stage and screen. Male, male-identified, and gender fluid audience members are also very welcome.
Persistent & Nasty is a platform with a focus on the voices of female-identified humans working, writing, and performing in the stage and screen industry. It was born from the frustration and anger of four actresses/writers, fed-up with the treatment of women across the industry; from the lack of profile female writers get, to the way that women are treated in the casting process.
All are welcome to this first event in the Persistent & Nasty series (men/male-identified people are encouraged to join us too). Just go along on the evening of the event and pay a small (£3-£5) donation on the door.
How the event will work
The format of the evening is in two parts. First there'll be a rehearsed reading of a piece of writing for theatre or film by a female-identified writer. This will be followed by an open forum discussion with an invited industry guest, addressing any issues the work points to and that affect women on a cross-industry level. Audience members will be encouraged to take place in this debate.
