"Awaggering, smart and side-achingly funny… A funny but fierce look at what it means to be a woman today" – ★★★★, What's On Stage, Sept 26, 2014

"Incredibly necessary, and a riotous evening at the theatre" – A Younger Theatre, Sept 27, 2014

"Whip-smart and relentless, [Women's Hour] leaves you feeling exhausted, wrung out by how funny it is but also how accurate, how infuriating… Part-comedy, part-theatre, part-performance art and loads of fun to watch" – ★★★★, Exeunt theatre mag, Sept 29, 2014

Presented by Sh!t Theatre

Women’s Hour–I’M FINE-Women’s Hour. First on Women’s Hour: Men, then us. Women’s Hour. Later on Women’s Hour: Ankle Socks? Women’s Hour.

An homage to the popular BBC Radio 4 magazine programme, Woman’s Hour, Sh!t Theatre's Women’s Hour uses satire, song, movement and mess to interrogate how the media portrays women, the obsessive and often funny gender binaries in modern life and the effect that has on the treatment of women in society.

Our Women's Hour is set in a supposed alternative universe, a surreal parallel of today. It is a combination of invented new segments and verbatim text taken from the BBC radio show. 

Women's Hour is a cabaret piece of 'giddy, freewheeling silliness' (Exeunt) about what happens when women are given just one hour a day to think about what it is to be a WOMAN.
