About

Equal Writes is a response to current issues of gender parity, representation of women and women’s equal rights to work presently existing on stage and throughout many sectors of society. Bringing together a diverse and strong collaboration of writers, directors and performers Equal Writes addresses the imperative for UK theatre to fully engage with the need for gender parity and to become more flexible and inclusively representative. Equal Writes focuses on practical and creative responses to the question ‘Which women are we not seeing represented on stage?’, welcoming thought-provoking ideas and inspirations to take it forwards. Equal Writes is open to all pro-active contributions from men and women towards representing greater visibility of women, role-modelling, breaking through stereotyping and age barriers for theatre audiences; to encourage and inspire the creation of more widely varied roles for women on stage and further the prospect that this becomes a reality.
