About Bechdel Theatre

We are a grassroots community interest company that supports, connects and amplifies people of marginalised genders in and through theatre and performance.

We create and facilitate physical and digital spaces to increase visibility, build solidarity and radically re-imagine the possibilities of UK theatre.

  • We use social media and blogging to recommend and celebrate theatre & performance by artists of marginalise genders.

  • We make a podcast interviewing artists and audience members about theatre, performance, politics and pop culture.

  • We facilitate audience conversations about theatre shows that we call Bechdel Circle, in theatre bars and cafes.

  • We run workshops which focus on empowerment, creativity and collaboration, and are open to anyone (with any level of training or none) who wants to make feminist theatre.

  • We put stickers on posters at theatre festivals to highlight work which passes the Bechdel test and help those shoes catch the attention of potential audience-members.

By being a Patreon and giving us a small amount of money every month, you can help us pay for our regular costs such as:

  • Upkeep of our website and building our online community.
  • Space, time and equipment to record our podcast.
  • Time and space to hold conversations, workshops and performance events, keeping them either free or accessible at a low cost to attend.
  • Printing of stickers, programmes and flyers, promoting both our own events and other people's shows.

Thank you to everyone who's supported us so far!

      
 

Goals
$26.90 of $1,000 per month
We're working towards increasing and widening our presence across the UK.
We'd like to see more touring shows, and attend all major theatre and arts festivals to seek out and support a wide range of Bechdel-friendly performing arts and help feminist audiences find shows that are playing a part in improving representation.
