For all the #NastyWomen (or anyone who can say #MeToo) looking for #GirlsLikeUs, wondering why #NeverthelessShePersisted, who want to #AskHerMore: Revolt.
Exhilaratingly wild, fearless and playful, REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN. is feminism at its messy edge. Alice Birch morphs language and explodes boundaries in this darkly comic manifesto exploring the myriad ways women are styled, shaped, and confined to fit society’s expectations, asking us: What happens when we rebel?
This play runs 70 minutes with no intermission.

“… couldn’t be more apropos for today’s #MeToo movement, or for the adventurous, women-run Crowded Fire.”
Jean Schiffman, San Francisco Examiner
“You can tell a show is genuinely radical when it somehow both scares you and instills in you the thrill of power… This whirlwind collage of scenes, this anarchic cacophony of a play is that rare theatrical work that lives up to the revolutionary promise of its title.”
Lily Janiak, San Francisco Chronicle
“… a call for another kind of revolution for the theater world.”
