Exeter Fringe Festival 2019
Eager Spark will have a double bill of new shorts performed at Exeter Phoenix from 7pm on Wednesday 31st July:
Exeter Phoenix – 7pm Wed 31st July
“Women have got to make the world safe for men since men have made it so darned unsafe for women”
1919. For the first time a woman is elected to the House of Commons.
Harassed on the backbenches, reduced to the clothing they wear, not treated as equals… Is this the state of affairs in 1919 or a hundred years on?
Rebel explores what happens to women when they reach Parliament and tackles the day to day reality of what women in politics face.
The Geneva Convention of Human F**ks
Exeter Phoenix – 8pm Wed 31st July
“You place your order and sit down in one of the cubicles. The girl you’ve ordered comes over, deliveries the coffee and then ducks under the table to get to business.”
Before Brexit kicks in, three blokes decide to do one last grand tour of Europe to sample all the forbidden and exploited delights that the continent has to offer.
Performed entirely by female actors, The Geneva Convention of Human F**ks follows Liam, Peter and Michael on their travels as they revise what they think is right and wrong, challenge their friendship to breaking point and question their relationship as men to women.
All tickets are Pay What You Decide on the night.
