50 / 50

About

50/50 is a performance night that presents scenes from new and established artists exploring all things gender-related. With at least 50% of performers being female, NB or GNC, it features a mix of new writing, re-worked classics, devised pieces, spoken word, physical theatre and stand-up.

The night is a meeting of minds, backgrounds and talent, as our artists come together to perform, discuss and, most importantly, celebrate egalitarianism in theatre. We believe there should be a gender balance in casting on stages everywhere.

 

Our first 50/50 night was in 2015, and so far we have hosted seven events over the last 4 years. Many pieces that started off at a 50/50 night have gone on to become full scale productions. Venues include: The Pleasance (London and Edinburgh), Southwark Playhouse, CogArts and the Arts Theatre.
