Who we are

Speak Woman Speak was born out of speaking and listening a lot with cups of coffee and tea. After exchanging our diverse backgrounds and heritage we felt empowered and we thought it would be great a way to empower other women and men. We are interested in using theatre as a platform to shout out our political stance. Speak Woman Speak is an all female Leeds based theatre collective. We make devised work highlighting hidden stories about women from diverse backgrounds.
