As a woman, where can you go in your hour of need?
For this family of queer intimates, the answer is: to bed.
In a Sydney sharehouse in 2016, five feminists come together, and come apart, as they navigate the turbulence of one eventful weekend. Around the central bed – their meeting place, their safe space and their rallying point of resistance – they confront difficult circumstances both personal and political.
Written and directed by Sophia Davidson Gluyas, The Bed Party is a new Australian play with an all-female cast. Part slumber party, part consciousness-raising circle, it’s a theatrical love letter to women’s lives with women.
Matilde Anglade, Julia Billington, Brigitta Brown, Margarita Gershkovich, Suz Mawer and Alex Moulis feature.
