about

meet the team

We are unsung collective. We make theatre that gives voice TO unsung women - from those whose stories are unfolding now, to those forgotten by history - with an unapologetic feminist agenda. 

We make work that chimes with the contemporary female experience – including all who identify as such. We approach our work with a sense of anarchy and irreverence.

 

ultimately, we want our audiences to come away feeling empowered, as though they’ve had fun, and bursting to share the night’s experiences with others.
