Although worlds and centuries apart, two women rebel against the difficulties that women have always come against.

Join us before or after your performance of GAZE to hear about the real women who formed the inspiration behind the play.

Delving into the very start of silent cinema, this talk will bring to the life the forgotten stories of five of the first female filmmakers from 1896-1916. Many of these women, including the focus of our play Alice Guy Blaché, are often unknown and left out of the history books, so it is our mission to raise awareness of the fantastic achievements of these early-film pioneers. 

This talk is free to ticket holders but please book a space.

Housewarming  is supported by  the Weston Culture Fund.
