"I'm here with you too Germaine - lying awake at night and wondering where that last century went."

On the day The Female Eunuch is issued in America, a transgender woman in flapping draperies rushes up to Germaine Greer and says: thank you - thank you so much for all you’ve done for us girls. Ugly Sisters is an operatic, heretic, parasitic and hallucinatory retelling of this very moment, of sisterhood, of all feminist history.

Ugly Sisters is the latest offering from multi-award winning company piss / CARNATION, following their critically acclaimed debut at Soho Theatre: 52 Monologues for Young Transsexuals (**** The Guardian, ***** To Do List - 'genuinely groundbreaking’)."

This is a work-in-progress performance. Audience members will be the first to experience it and have the opportunity to chat with the creators afterwards about the show.

Doors from 7pm, with bars and music until 11pm
Happy hour 7pm-8pm with 2 for £10 on cans of wine and beer, pub prices at the bar for the rest of the evening.

Summer in The Ditch

Nights of live performance, drag and cabaret.

Join us for Summer in The Ditch – a series of artist takeovers of the basement space at Shoreditch Town Hall, featuring a glorious programme of all things camp, queer and cult...

With experimental new work, and rough and ready sessions from musicians, artists, poets and performers, anything can happen and the unexpected is always welcome. So meet us in The Ditch for some mischief and mayhem.

All performances will be relaxed: audiences are allowed to move around, make noise and leave the room. Latecomers will be admitted.
