Project Description

Rattle & Roll

Set against the backdrop of regeneration and recession, Rattle & Roll is a story about chaos, the order behind it and the strengths of those women trying to survive it.

Four women are trying to jump track. A new name, street and settee mean a new start, a way out and a past left behind. However a missing wheelie bin, a broken promise and mother’s day throw the women back on familiar ground, but this time they are on a collision course with a runaway train.

From April – December 2009, the Herstory Told Project saw drama workshops looking at issues including sexual exploitation, addiction, homelessness and adoption took place with 57 young women and women who directly informed the creation of Rattle & Roll.

Brilliant performances… Thoroughly entertaining.

A fantastic way of highlighting a lot of issues impacting on women… a great way of getting the message across to lots of people.
