A message from School of Arts alumnae, Rachael Smith (Drama and Theatre BA, 2013:
My name is Rachael and I’m getting in touch on behalf of my theatre company PearShaped with a ticket offer for our show Conquest, which is transferring to The Bunker later this month.
I am School of Arts alumni (I graduated in 2013), studied Drama and Theatre Studies, and am now producing with PearShaped, We are an emerging theatre company who make female-led theatre and twist conventional forms of storytelling.
Described as Fight Club meets Calendar Girls, Conquest is a funny and honest exploration of sexual consent and the minefield of today’s feminism. And involves a lot of cupcakes.
The show premiered at Vault festival where we got some great reviews. Here are some things people said about the show:
“A timely, humorous look at feminism, period-shaming and the glaring issues of a patriarchal society” (A Younger Theatre)
“This is a Conquest [people] should be boasting they have seen” (British Theatre Guide)
“a statement piece penned by Katie Caden… an exploration of the multidimensional female voice” – Londontheatre1
The show is running from the 29th May to the 9th June (Tuesday – Saturday) starting at 8.30pm every night. We’re double billing with fab company on the button who are presenting their show ‘Don’t Panic! It’s Challenge Anneka’ at 7pm each night.
