production information

Critically-acclaimed all-female ensemble Gaggle were named as one of NME’s Future 50 most innovative groups and have gone on to create boundary-breaking works across Europe’s festivals, on radio, in galleries and online.

Now they return to London with a timely retelling of Lysistrata, the classic comedy about a gang of vigilante women, set against the backdrop of post-election despair in the UK.

Join Gaggle and some very special guests as they set about trying to figure out how we can change the world.
