The language used to oppress, belittle and justify violence against women will be turned on itself in Alice Birch's Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again.

On stage at the Malthouse Theatre from June 16 to July 9, the critically acclaimed play sees Birch construct a series of short scenes in order to challenge conventions surrounding work, sex, love, ageing and motherhood. In one, three generations of women take part in a violent family reunion. In another, two supermarket managers question a customer after she sits in a pile of melons with her dress over her head. A critic for The New York Times said the play "captures the fury of modern womanhood", which, if true, then yes please.
