About the Play

This is a feminist alarm that scrutinizes the language, actions, and hidden biases of our society that unfairly favors men over women. Playwright Alice Birch puts forth a call for contemporary women to dismantle or sabotage anything that is complicit in their oppression.

Intense Adult Themes, Strong Language

He attended Emerson College (a long time ago) and has taught at University of Chicago, The Theater School at DePaul University, Columbia College Chicago and Lake Forest College.

Director's Statement

I think one of the biggest battles our society needs to fight is the obsession that men are better than women. While young, we are all taught that men can have dominion over women, and throughout our lives this point of view is supported by language, media, and law. It needs to end. Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. demands that we all become better feminists. The play is shocking, it is exciting, it is aggressive, it is necessary, it will hopefully lead to many personal revolutions.
