The Bechdel Test @ Waterfront Theatre Thursday October 17 2019 at 7:30 PM

Waterfront Theatre
× Created by Lisa Rowland (USA)

The Bechdel Test is a set of criteria created by feminist cartoonist and author Allison Bechdel. It asks: Does a work of fiction have at least one scene in it where two women talk about something other than a man? The remarkably low percentage of films and stories that pass this test points to the fact that we all have grown accustomed to creating and seeing stories centering around men. And as story creators we often perpetuate that pattern. Debuting on the main stage at BATS in August 2016, the Bechdel test format aims to explore the complexities, relationships, and stories of women. Simply deciding to make stories whose main characters are women - good, bad, likeable and not - is a departure from the stories that we often consume and create!
NOTE: This show is suitable for children aged 8 and over. We cannot accommodate younger children, toddlers or infants. Any show may contain mature content and language, parental discretion is advised.
