WORDS WITHOUT CONSENT
Using words spoken by both prominent figures and from their interviews with everyday women, Words Without Consent is a verbatim play telling two stories: an increasingly out of control debate, and two gals getting ready to go out (like, out out.) Satirising both well known political faux-pas and those that have been swept under the rug, 2Gal invites the audience to laugh at the ridiculous state of the current political landscape. By jumping between lecterns and lip-gloss, from the political stage to the bedroom of a London flat, we reveal how the words of politicians directly impact us all. But while a BoJo meme is well worth a share, should we be asking more from our leaders?

Refuge is the largest specialist domestic abuse organisation in the UK. On any given day their services support thousands of survivors, helping them to overcome the physical, emotional, financial and logistical impacts of abuse and rebuild their lives free from fear.
2Gal are raising funds for Refuge throughout their Edinburgh Fringe run.
Please help us to support the life changing work they do.
Following a scratch performance at Brighton's FemFest in 2020, Words Without Consent premiered at Brighton Fringe 2021. The play was then selected as one of only a handful of productions to feature at Southwark Playhouse for SWK Fest. We went on to perform during Camden Fringe at the Hen & Chickens Theatre and are back on the scene at Edinburgh Fringe 2022.
