Themis Theatre presents The Dissent by Libby Boyd

Tuesday, December 13

Icarus, Ariadne and Phaedra are uniting to smash the patriarchy for a second shot at life.

A young woman has fallen from the sky to her death. In a trial to determine where she will spend eternity, Icarus is forced to examine the events which led to her flight and defend her choices. But how can she give her defence when history, the justice system and language itself is not designed for women?

Playful, provocative and poetic at times, The Dissent mixes Greek mythology with prose and parody to explore injustice, the language of the patriarchy and the role it plays in gender-based violence

This performance is part of our Autumn season in The Lab.

The Lab is Theatre Royal Plymouth’s smallest space and a place for exploration and experimentation. Our Talent Development Programme seeks to support the most exciting artists, companies and creatives in making the theatre of tomorrow.

Post-show talk: Fri 13 Dec 2022
