The Criterion in Lockdown: Virtual Readings

This will run just like an open reading we would hold in the bar, with parts circulating around those who would like to read, and with people who would rather not read a part being very welcome to come along and just listen to the play. It will run through a dedicated Zoom link.

If you would like to be involved then please email Anne-marie Greene at artisticdirector@criteriontheatre.co.uk

Bloody Wimmin by Lucy Kirkwood

Characters:

Male (5) , Female (10) ,

Lucy Kirkwood’s dark comedy Bloody Wimmin is a short play staged at the Tricycle, London, in June–July 2010. It’s 1984 and the peace camp at Greenham Common is in full swing. Mother-to-be Helen is torn between her commitment to the cause of nuclear disarmament and her expectant husband back home. Twenty-five years later and her now adult son, James, is an environmental activist, railing against what he perceives as sexual exploitation in the way the media is covering their protests.
