Not Another Bloody Play
On the 19th of October (2018) The Twisted Hares readied themselves for their first performance outside of University: ‘Not Another Bloody Play’. The devised 30-minute stint was commissioned as part of the Woman’s Environmental Network’s, Environmenstrual Festival Week. The event drew visitors from around the country, to raise awareness of the devastating impact women, specifically sanitary products, have on the environment. This was the basis for ‘Not Another Bloody Play’. Using songs, music, poetry and scene work to create an eclectic comedy performance that explored the themes of periods and their impact on women and the environment; the play, though light in nature, hit on some really heavy and dark moments, resonating the seriousness of these issues. Needless to say, the play was a resounding success, with tickets completely selling out a week before curtain up. Some audience members said, ‘It was amazing, honestly, it was the best part of the day!’ ‘you are so funny, I wish you had performed at my school!’, giving us the boost to continue working on a full-length performance, coming soon!
Our previous work includes On Us (2017), a 90 minute devised show, performed at the Barn Theatre in Sidcup, Kent. It explored aspects of the entire life of a woman: it's cyclical nature, it's curious seasons, and the variety of experiences that can exist in those periods.
