For The Guardian & WhatsOnStage: The Words Are Coming Now

Put together in under a month and rehearsed in three days, The Words Are Coming Now is a rapid response to the #MeToo moment, presenting 10 short plays (all under 10 minutes long) accompanied by post-show discussions. Featuring established and emerging playwrights, the production avoids the stark polarity of debate about consent that it is easy to fall into on social media. Instead it carves a space for empathy, humour and a multiplicity of viewpoints in a complex area at a time when sexual harassment and misconduct allegations have rocked theatre, film and other industries.
