What's Happening Now

“Grab them by the pussy.”

During his controversial presidential election campaign, Donald Trump regularly made statements considered by many to be offensive, misogynistic and sexist. Can such sexually abusive rhetoric really be accepted as mere ‘locker room talk’?

Gary McNair wants to think we’re better than this, and is having honest conversations with men about women to see if he is right or wrong. The words of these men will be performed by a cast of women in this quick-response verbatim piece, directed by Orla O’Loughlin, Artistic Director of the Traverse Theatre, Scotland.

This work in progress is presented as part of our What’s Happening Now series. Each performance will be followed by a discussion giving the opportunity for the audience to participate, ask questions and shape the development of the show.
