Revolt. She said. Revolt again.

Alice Birch

PaperBack (06 Aug 2016)

You are expected to behave…


        Use the right words


                Act appropriately


                        Don't break the rules


                                Just behave. 

This play is not well behaved.


Alice Birch examines the language, behaviour and forces that shape women in the 21st century and asks what's stopping us from doing something truly radical to change them.

Winner of the George Devine Award for Most Promising New Playwright 2014.

'The ferocious energy that courses through this short, sharp shock of a production might be characterized as, well, kind of beautiful... “Revolt” unfolds in a series of fragments that recall the form-bending virtuosity of Caryl Churchill... yet “Revolt” teems with the same anarchic fury that possessed Jimmy Porter and the same frustrated awareness that there are no easy fixes for an unsatisfactory social system... Ms. Birch’s work finds the theatrical exhilaration in civil disobedience.'
