In her opening commentary on Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. playwright Alice Birch vigorously asserts that ‘most importantly, this play should not be well behaved’.

It certainly isn’t – Revolt is not a piece that tries to take care of us or provide answers. Over 70 rollercoaster minutes, we are propelled through five acts: the first consists of initially recognisable scenarios — work places, dates, supermarkets – all becoming increasingly surreal or grotesque. The moment we feel we are beginning to grasp 'the point’, we are catapulted into a new act and world. The fleeting naturalism of Act 2 evolves into a quasi-Shakespearian bloodbath. Act 3 revels in unmitigated chaos, returning to motifs and images explored earlier in the play. In final contrast, Act 4 offers the simplicity of the here and now, interrogating the current state of the world we inhabit as women.

Birch leaves us asking — can we truly dismantle the legacy of patriarchy and re-claim our own idea of femininity — are we truly ‘ready’?
