Menstrual Rage is a feminist theatre company that strives to explore issues that universally affect women by aiming to create a safe and inclusive place that celebrates positivity and womanhood. If there is anything more punk rock than that in 2022 I would like to see it, even their press pack reads like a micro-zine. By creating innovative shows that challenge femininity and stereotypes, Menstrual Rage strive to make work that is accessible to all.

Their latest production, Get Loud, is about four girls and their fight against the patriarchy, accompanied by live riot grrrl-inspired punk music. The show aims to tackle a sense of hopelessness while finding empowerment in the places you would least expect by turning it into an inspired piece of gig theatre, which will tour the region, coming to Base Camp, Middlesbrough (Monday 27th-Tuesday 28th June); The Central, Gateshead (Thursday 30th June-Friday 1st July) and The Peacock, Sunderland (Wednesday 6th-Thursday 7th July)

Companion piece, And Me, will also be performed alongside Get Loud at Base Camp, as well as at Durham Fringe Festival in July, and explores sexual harassment through movement, spoken word and music. The group have stated: “How young do you start experiencing harassment? Why are young girls sexualised so much from an early age? And Me showcases the real-life stories of the micro harassments young women experience every day.”

Get Loud by Menstrual Rage is performed at Base Camp, Middlesbrough on Monday 27th-Tuesday 28th June, The Central, Gateshead on Thursday 30th June-Friday 1st July and The Peacock, Sunderland on Wednesday 6th-Thursday 7th July.
