From an original idea by Sara Clifford.
With Research and Development funding from ACE England, plus partnership support from New Writing South and Brighton Dome and Festival, 12 women, including Sara, were commissioned by Inroads to write short pieces about what makes them angry.
A sold out script in hand showcase performance was presented at the Brighton Dome Studio on March 4th 2016.
On her recent trip to New Zealand, funded by a British Council Artists Interntaional Development Fund grant, Sara developed Twelve Angry Women with local writers in Wellington, resulting in a rehearsed reading at Circa Theatre, directed by Kathy McRae.
"This has been an amazing experience which is like 'just a beginning' though we are of course weaving the threads of our mothers and grandmothers into richer and more resilient tapestries." (Althea)
"I read some graffiti once that said “art is not only a product of experience but a source of new experience” and that has certainly been true of 12 Angry Women. Thank you so much for the opportunity to take part in this project. I am sure it will be the impetus for a lot more good work." (Bianca)
"A highly entertaining and inspiring night of new writing by local female writers."
