Back Talk Theatre is a new company, focused on placing female narratives at the centre of their work.
Their focus is on new writing that interrogates the politics, sexual attitudes and emotional engagements of people who identify as women.
Formed at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, they have had their work produced as part of the Pub Theatre Festival 2019 and the Tristan Bates Otherland Season.
'The decision's all mine. Right?'
Rosie is sick of being told what to do.
How to act, how to date and who to love.
A Girl, Standing is a snapshot of one woman's life as she tries to navigate the demands of the people who claim to love her.
How much should you change yourself to make the people you love happy?
And whose feelings are you willing to trample to get what you want?
In A Girl, Standing, the differences between the ways that men and women view relationships are put under the microscope.
The morning-after small talk between Rosie and Sam is laid bare against the late-night conversations of Rosie and Cara.
As Rosie and Sam argue and reconcile, they learn that their heteronormative dynamic of monogamy, jealousy and sex, is not what either of them expected.
And at a moment when Rosie prepares to make a vital decision, everything she thought she knew about herself, and her politics, is challenged.
