Voices in the Dark
As we continue to interrogate Shakespeare’s transformative impact on the world, in a season inspired by his very own She Wolf, Queen Margaret of Anjou, the Shakespeares of today will pen letters to the forgotten women of the past.
There can be no denying that history has been dominated by stories about men and by men. Wikipedia, the online go-to for instant information, has acknowledged its own gender bias, with biographies about women numbering only 17% of all biographies on the site.
Notes to the Forgotten She Wolves will give candlelight to those women who have shaped our history, even though their stories have remained in the dark.
Please check back later in the year for more information about writers, performers and on-sale dates.

ABOUT VOICES IN THE DARK
Voices in the Dark is an ongoing festival which runs alongside our main-stage productions, and examines the nature of Shakespeare’s transformative impact on the world, asking how relevant Shakespeare is today.
Through this dialogue – a call and response between today’s artists and Shakespeare – we put his imagined experience alongside today’s lived experience, and ask what light one can shed on the other.
