I’m With Her

Date: 8 Oct 2019

I’m With Her is a compelling collection of real-life stories from remarkable Australian women. 

From bartenders and Prime Ministers, to world champion athletes and nuns, these are stories of resilience and resistance in the age of #MeToo and #Time’sUp.

The women whose stories have never before been told on the Australian stage until this point include: Dr Anne Aly, Counter Terrorism Expert and Labor MP; Julie Bates AO, Safe Sex Educator and Sex Worker; Marion Blackwell, Environmental Scientist; Pam Burridge, World champion surfer; The Hon Julia Gillard, Australia’s first female Prime Minister; Nikki Keating, bartender and sexual harassment campaigner; Professor Marcia Langton AM, Foundation Chair of Australian Indigenous Studies, University of Melbourne; Sister Patricia Madigan, Catholic Nun, and Erin Phillips, AFL Champion footballer.

From small, quiet acts of resistance to very public triumphs, these women share their guile, wit, and acute emotional intelligence to remind us all that resistance is in all of us and the possibility of change is here.

“Making this show has made me feel really certain about the future” says director and lead writer, Victoria Midwinter Pitt.

“The revelation of this play is seeing how women have always, (and will always), resist. No one cops abuse or injustice without, at some level, resisting it. And that takes all kinds of forms. Sometimes it’s silently knowing that it’s wrong, that it’s not how things should be. Sometimes it’s full-blown counterattack. And sometimes it’s just the insistence to remember who you actually are inside.”

Gabrielle Chan, Shakira Clanton, Lynette Curran, Deborah Galanos and Emily Havea feature.
