London community Tour
24th september-6th october
Leah is smart, kind, recently promoted, and fnally seems to ‘have it all’ when she gets to be the Mrs to Mr Ben Cavendish. But she finds herself revolting; revolting against a society and a judicial system that just won’t listen.
Fabric is a one-woman show starring Nancy Sullivan that gives voice to one woman’s experience of sexual violence and trauma. Through Leah, we bear witness to how grey areas seep into everyday life, and how a million small things – some seemingly harmless – can result in one terrible act.
Following a critically acclaimed run at Soho Theatre, Damsel Productions brings this poignant and brutal piece on a tour of non-traditional spaces in four London boroughs, bringing this story into the heart of our communities.
Each performance during the tour will be accompanied by an opportunity to learn more and get involved. The first performance at each venue will be followed by a Q&A session with a specialist panel. The second and third performances will be preceded by active workshops on bystander intervention; the first for young people aged 16-25 and the second for people of all ages and genders.
A post-show panel discussion will be held 24 September, 27 September, 1 October & 4 October focussing on what's next in the battle to end violence against women, with writer Abi Zakarian alongside representatives from Solace and their partner organisations.
Open to 16+
Sexual harassment can be difficult to identify, and even more difficult to respond to. This session will help participants learn how to recognise sexual harassment and equip them with different strategies to safely respond and challenge behaviours, when it is happening to them and to someone else.
