In the workplace, in cyberspace, on screen, on stage, in relationships, in 21st century Britain. What does it mean to be a woman today?

An all-female cast dissect this question in Blurred Lines at The Shed. A new piece, created by Carrie Cracknell (A Doll’s House, Wozzeck) and Nick Payne (Constellations, The Same Deep Water As Me), Blurred Lines is a journey through the reality of gender equality in Britain today.

There’s women, lots of women. And sexism. There’s lots of that too. Casual, fearsome, everyday sexism. And hey, would you look at that, there’s even singing sexism (“you know you want it”).

Many may want to turn a blind eye but it is everywhere and Blurred Lines is an unapologetic look at those everyday moments of hidden inequality that can have a huge impact on your answer to the question: what does it mean to be a woman today?

Blurred Lines is at The Shed from 16 January – 22 February 2014. Tickets cost £12/£20 and can be booked online or via the box office on 020 7452 3244.
