Mon 13 May, 2019

You’re invited to join the party! And this is a party unlike anything you've been to before. Organiser Minder Athwal tells us more about what's hitting the city for the next week:

The Party Somewhere Else is a collective of maverick female artists who are bringing amazing shows by women and non-binary artists to Nottingham between 14th and 19th May 2019!

After last year’s success, the collective were described as "The female avengers of the performing arts”. Now The Party Somewhere Else is back to take over Nottingham Playhouse with a theatre festival that has something for everyone.

You can expect a week of world-class theatre, dance, poetry, workshops, comedy and cabaret all with a party atmosphere! With a free ticket fund, stages exploding with excitement and energy and even an after party with pop up cabaret acts, you’re not going to want to miss this festival!

Shows include:

- A bisexual Bridget Jones for the online generation

- A journey of discovery, divorce, menopause and sexual awakening with hypnotic melodies and humour.

- Family friendly shows and performances

- A voyeuristic theatrical performance

- A fun night out, in the daytime without needing to hire a babysitter

- A blood-soaked morality tale about victimhood, power and flipping the gender rule book on psychopathy

- One of the UK’s best improvisers creating a musical show on the spot with audience suggestions.

On top of all that, they’re working to make theatre more inclusive and accessible in Nottingham with BSL, captioning, relaxed performances and even shows for adults that are suitable for parents who want to bring their babies and a free crèche for some events.

Oh, and have you heard about the free ticket fund? With money often being a barrier when it comes to the theatre, The Party Somewhere Else are offering free tickets to anyone who would like to attend a show but is a bit short on money right now. For people who are just waiting for payday, they can still use the fund and if they want, pay it forward by donating to the fund at a later date!

Everyone is welcome at The Party Somewhere Else!

The collective was established after members growing frustration about women being excluded from spaces in theatre and female creatives not having their work and stories showcased. Instead of staying angry, they decided that if they weren’t being invited to the party, they’d just have to start a party of their own somewhere else!

Now The Party Somewhere Else work to platform high quality work by female and non-binary creatives and teams. They want to open the doors to people who might have felt shut out in the past and showcase the brilliant shows and work that audiences would otherwise miss out on.

Audiences can get involved too. With free open house events, people can see exciting new performances that are still in development, talk to the artists and join in friendly conversations about what they’ve seen.

We hope you can join the party!
