About

Rehearsals Who are The Roaring Girls?

We’ve been collaborating since 2014, when we created Skirts, Shirts, and Vintage Dresses for Assemble Fest 2014. Since then, we’ve been a New Diorama Graduate Emerging Company, performed at BeSTival (Bernese Student Theatre Festival) in Switzerland, and became a Supported Company at Hull Truck Theatre. 

The Roaring Girls use personal narratives, often our own, to create our work. We want to talk about things we can relate to, that our audience can relate to. Our work is informal – we don’t want our audiences to sit in the dark and watch us. We create work for active audiences, we want to share our stories in the hope that you will share yours.
