A series of community productions about women, girls and cricket.
In 2022, Women & Theatre will present a series of new community productions about women, girls, and cricket.
Celebrating the beauty of the sport itself, the piece will also explore women and girls’ lives, concerns, opportunities and aspirations, and represent experiences from across the Commonwealth.
Developed from research and performed by local women and girls, productions will take place at outdoor locations in Ward End, Edgbaston and Smethwick in May & June 2022, with final performances at MAC in July 2022. A standalone audio experience will be available via podcast and listening stations.

Therefore ticketing for the 15 May, 29 May and 19 June are Pay What You Can (PWYC) a non-profit ticket model which does not depend on set prices for performances, but instead asks audiences to pay what they can – with 3 prize brackets available including a free option. Tickets for 15 – 17 July are £5 plus booking fee.
