Originally created as a Twitter campaign in 2015 by Beth Watson and now a 50-minute women-in-theatre audible feast!
Bechdel Theatre is directly inspired by the famous Bechdel Test which looks at gender representation in film - only now british theatre is under the microscope.
In this first episode Beth and her co-host Pippa discuss whether subverting gender on stage, as seen in Panto, can still pass the Bechdel Test requirements...
Also discussed is Emma Rice's departure from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, an interview with the Donmar Trilogy's Jade Anouka and introducing #BringAFeministFriend.
Plus expect chat on "Oil" at the Almeida Theatre AS WELL AS what to look forward to in 2017...
AND if you want to be in with the chance of winning Dame Harriet Walter's book Brutus and Other Heriones send in your Bechdel-passing conversations (about absolutely ANYTHING) to
