Women: Do You Know What You Are Angry About?

When theatre legend Joan Littlewood directed Shelagh Delaney's first play, A Taste of Honey, critics disgruntedly said Delaney was just like the angry young men dominating British theatre. But Littlewood said no: Delaney was different because she knew what she was angry about. 

We at Agent 160 think this is still a valid question. Do you know what you are angry about? Do we? 

As part of our Fun Palace, we're going to have what we hope will be a fierce, fun conversation about anger, feminism and activism, not just in theatre but in our lives. We hope you'll come and join in.
