Devised by Process Theatre
“A slut is a slut, all this bullshit about choice.”
Things We Do Not Know is an exploration of female street sex workers in Bristol.
Using verbatim theatre and music, this hour-long production asks how these women end up having to sell themselves for sex. It explores how society views them, and how they can get help.
The piece began development last year in collaboration with Bristol-based charity One25 and the Bristol theatre society Spotlights. After a successful revival at the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft in March, Process Theatre is bringing the piece back for one day only in the newly constructed Bear Pit Open Air Theatre. The charity works to help get the women clean, safe and off the streets.
This one day performance is free, pay what you can. All proceeds go to One25.
There will also be a donations bucket at the end of the performances to raise money for One25. (http://one25.org.uk/).
“This piece was a creative, brave and fantastically directed testament to the Bristol based charity One25 which helps street sex workers break free from their traumatic and dangerous lives.” Intermission
“It never sought to shock or relish in a perpetuated sense of tragedy, nor did it sensationalize the idea of “sex” in sex-work… it just wanted to be honest.” ***** Epigram
We recommend an 18+ audience due to the sensitive content in the play.
The space will be open air so please dress appropriately for the weather.
