For its brand new festival - 'Come As You Are' - Camden People's Theatre (CPT) welcomes a host of gender-anarchists with more questions than answers, as they confront (and solve?) all the world’s issues regarding female, male, between and beyond.

The festival runs from 12 to 30 September 2017 and the full programme is available here.

And there's a special festival pass which allows you tickets to 5 or more shows with 20% off - which soulnds to us like a bargain.

In the last few years, progressive thinking about gender has gone mainstream, and understanding has developed of gender as infinite variety.

More and more individuals are reclaiming the right to define their genders, their bodies, their selves.

Some have called this “the ultimate forum for self-expression”, some “the next civil rights frontier”.

Either way, it's a destabilising and liberating cultural change.

Come As You Are will feature work by the UK's most exciting theatre artists.

The headliner will be Milk Presents' major new show Bullish, recipient of CPT’s inaugural Home Run commission and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

Recent CPT themed festivals (e.g. Calm Down, Dear festival of feminism; Whose London Is It Anyway? festival exploring the housing crisis) featured work by Louise Orwin, Sh!t Theatre, Chris Goode, Fuel Theatre, Coney, Annie Siddons and others.
