    Theatre Uncut

    The multi-award-winning political agitators are back at the Traverse with a morning of outstanding new writing and fiery debate.

    Join the Theatre Uncut team as they present their brand new collection of plays, The Power Plays, written by some of the UK’s most dynamic female voices, exploring the theme of power.

    They will also be joined by inspiring guests from across the festival to discuss this historic moment in gender politics as the Women’s Marches, #TimesUp and #MeToo rock the world.

    Writers include Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan, Cordelia Lynn, Niellah Arboine, Sabrina Mahfouz, Sharon Clark and Vivienne Franzmann.
