Women Redressed returned in Spring 2017, first returning to the Park Theatre before taking over the Jermyn Street Theatre. These were the fourth and fifth instalments of the festival after previous sell-out successes at Park Theatre, Arcola Theatre and the Arts Theatre.
Women Redressed: Spring 2017
Sheer Height Theatre recognises an urgent need to redress the balance in the portrayal of women, both on and off the stage. Their persistent aim? To tell stories about women, plant female characters centre stage, and challenge perceptions and expectations of gender. In turbulent times, their work is more vital than ever.

This special edition of Women Redressed proffered a two-programme event across four evenings. Women Redressed: Act II featured a selection of 30 minute pieces, giving more space to emerging UK writers to explore female characters and examine issues of gender.
