Welcome to Female Arts

Female Arts Scratch Night! at the Bread and Roses theatre, Clapham 7.30pm 23rd November. Promoting Gender Equality - Women are not equally represented in the arts – this ranges from a lack of roles for women over 45 on TV and in theatre, to a glass ceiling for senior roles in business, to unequal pay. Female Arts promote women in interviews, reviews and news to redress this gender imbalance. We're interested in the performing, visual and literary arts with the focus on women including theatre, exhibitions, film, literature, comedy, music, women in business, in the UK and beyond. We support #allwomen and would like to see more women of colour, disability, and LGBTQI in the media. We welcome supportive men. #genderequality Read more About Us our Review Team and Associate Artists and please Support Us. If you'd like us to share with our readers what you're involved in please read our Review FAQ's then email your press release to Wendy Thomson editor@femalearts.com.

Three Sisters, White Bear Theatre - Review

Over the past couple of years I have seen a couple of ‘updated’ versions of Chekhov’s Three Sisters. The first I saw was Benedict Andrews’ vision at the Young Vic, replete with contemporary references and ‘choice’ language. The second was Anya Reiss’ adaptation earlier this year at the Southwark Playhouse, which relocated the action to Yemen and the Prosorov sisters were pining to get back to good ol’ Blighty.
