2018 has already been dubbed by many as the year of the woman and on 25 January at the Royal Northern College of Music the city’s LGBT+ charity will bring together five creative women who are making diverse work for the stage. The show will find out what inspires them, how they made it, their successes and lessons along the way, what they really get out of performing, and what advice they would give to the up-and-coming makers of tomorrow.
The event will hosted by Kate O’Donnell (Big Girl’s Blouse; You’ve Changed) with special guests Cheryl Martin (Alaska; Who Wants To Live Forever?), Jackie Hagan (Some People Have Too Many Legs; Cosmic Scallies), Debs Gatenby (Hi, Anxiety; A Place Called Happiness) and Louise Wallwein (Glue; Skid 180).
Kate will speak about her own work and then interview each of the guests in turn, showing performance clips and asking probing questions. The audience will then have chance to ask their own questions to the performers.
The event will take place on Thursday 25 January 2018 from 7pm till 11pm and tickets are priced at £6 for general admission and £4 concession. They can be purchased from the Superbia website .
