The final StoryNight of the season!

Women Who Gave No F*cks


with Lucy Lill & Alys Torrance plus special guest, Kersti Ståbi!

We bring you glittering prizes, a human clap-o-meter and total power. Who will you crown Supreme Giver of Absolutely None? Stand-up tale-tellers slam down the stories, with an MC to keep things clean. Brace yourselves for no-holds-barred tales to make you want to rip up the rule book and riot!

Women around the globe are hitting the headlines standing up to abuse of power, and calling out inequality. We began tweeting one another the names and images of inspiring super-women who stalk through the world’s myths and legends. Excited by what we found, we dug deeper. Many were new to us – side-lined and almost forgotten. No longer! From Magyar domestic warrior or Irish pirate queen, to naughty Greek pig-wife belly goddess, Japanese Sun deity, or Sumerian sword-wielding nemesis, we bring you myths and legends of females outgunning adversity. Wielding wit, brains, cunning, courage, righteous rage and the occasional superpower, these imperfect women embody what can be achieved when we give absolutely no fucks.

A celebratory, inspiring night meant for men as much as women.

“WWGNF socks it to the Patriarchy with stories of women from history and legend who took no prisoners and lived life on their own terms.  An antidote to pink, pastel, and barbie dolls, WWGNF inspires, educates, empowers, and above all entertains.  A rousing night out!”

“A meaty, satisfying message wrapped in an upbeat, hilarious show – seemed to bring out the best in everyone on stage and we all left buzzing”

We’ll be back with more top notch performance storytelling in from October 2024!
