Presented by Isabel Sharman

Daisy didn’t realise the implications of staying out until 2am, and Lindsay hadn’t been told that being a “Little Devil” automatically signalled consent; Savanna mistook her experience for a “real” crime, and Philomela just wanted to ruin his reputation…

Diving in and out of a nest of Greek myth, Fox News, Karaoke and 90s gameshows, let Isy and her clattering of Greek chorus girls feed you an ancient story of violated girls who refuse to be quiet, the vultures that prey on them, and the lengths that some people will go to keep them silent. 

Nightingales is a devised piece that uses storytelling, and visual and physical theatre to draw the audience into a conversation about the nature of rape culture and our own unconscious attitudes, contemplating how a society can end up harming the victim of an attack more than the perpetrator.
