Northern Girls

"Frank, fearless and funny"

Charles Hutchinson reviewing Northern Girls


Following the success of Northern Girls 2020, we’re travelling to three new locations this autumn for a series of captivating outdoor performances in York, Bridlington, and Redcar. We’ve brought together an incredible team of professional and community writers to develop monologues that explore what it means to be a Northern Girl in 2021. This ambitious project spans three communities bringing together debut writers, professional writers and directors as well as schools and community venues.

Each performance is unique to the location and has been developed, written, and performed by women and girls with direct connections to these places. Each short piece will represent the joys, frustrations, and complexities of northern female identity.
