Reliably informed

Local feminist theatre company Menstrual Rage are back in their town of origin to perform two of their shows which cover the realities of female lived experience in all of its rage and glory. Hartlepool Town Hall welcomes the group for a showcase of AND ME on Tuesday 4th October and GET LOUD! on Wednesday 5th October.

After learning about the statistic that 97% of women aged 18-24 have experienced sexual harassment, Menstrual Rage took action and reached out to their followers online to learn about their experiences. This informed the show AND ME, which uses a mix of spoken word, movement and music to share the stories of what it is to be part of a harassed majority.

GET LOUD! meanwhile follows the fight of four girls against the patriarchy in an unapologetically feminist show filled with punk music. This show considers the strength and value of female friendship as well as the varied definitions of home.

Both stories explore female empowerment and what it is to take up space and make noise in a place that has often denied you the chance.
