Alice Birch’s feminist play about language and power storms the Malthouse
This 2014 play by young British playwright Alice Birch was written in response to Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich’s quote “well behaved women seldom make history”, and investigates the power of language to oppress women and their interests, through several vignettes.
Birch has described the work as a “series of attempts at revolution, and a series of provocations.”
