He Said She Said They Said is an exciting new performance, exploring gender in modern Herefordshire. Six monologues have been written by six local writers, all with different identities and sexual orientations, based on their stories about living and growing up in a small rural place.
Meet the middle-aged actor struggling with his role in an entirely unglamorous
advert, hear how a grandmother grapple’s with her granddaughter’s life-choices and be transported back to Elizabethan England, were the boundaries between male and female were not always so clear cut…
Though our free-to-attend drama groups, it became clear that gender and identity is an incredibly important issue for their members. So why not join us for six unique stories and learn what it’s like to identify in different ways?
He Said She Said They Said will premiere Saturday 23 March 2024 with a strictly limited run of two performances. The audience will be sat at tables in the gorgeous Upstairs In De Koffie Pot. Share the actors stories and debate with your friends, all while enjoying drinks from the bar downstairs…
