You are expected to behave…
Use the right words.
Act appropriately.
Don’t break the rules.
Just behave.
This play is not well behaved.

Alice Birch’s acclaimed play, transfers to Shoreditch Town Hall following runs in Edinburgh and at The Other Place Festival in Stratford-upon-Avon. Winner of the 2014 George Devine Award, this performance examines the language, behaviour and forces that shape women in the 21st century and asks what is stopping us from doing something truly radical to change them.

Directed by RSC Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman.

"The play is shocking and funny, thought-provoking and definitely, as explicitly stipulated by the writer, not well behaved."
