The Butch Monologues

Women of the World (WOW) Festival
7 March 2015
Southbank Centre, London
On March 7th, The Butch Monologues returns to the Southbank Centre in London as part of the Women of the World festival (WOW).

Last year, audiences were queuing around the WOW block to get into this sell-out performance. This year, by popular demand, the Butch Monologues returns to a bigger venue, with additional stories and new performers.


The show, written by Laura Bridgeman (hotpencil press), directed by Julie McNamara (Vital Xposure), and developed and performed by the Drakes, re-positions the negative, socially threatening concept of female masculinity into a place of pride. Using urgency and humour, the collection offers fresh language from contributors living in the UK, Europe, the US, the Caribbean and beyond and features experiences of: butch desire, bravado, vulnerability, butch sex, and perceptions of the body.

"An excellent piece of theatre. And a very tangible vehicle for social 
change."   Jude Kelly CBE

Showtime is 15.30 - click here for tickets. An all day events pass is only £20.
