"Hear Her Roar had passion, heartache, love and solidarity."

Workie Ticket Theatre CIC is a female-led theatre company, based in the North East, producing work in the community that reflects current social issues. We aim to be a launchpad for new talent by creating opportunities for industry professionals, celebrating Women’s Theatre, promoting diversity, working towards making theatre accessible for all audiences, and focusing on shedding light on real women’s stories.

A commitment to creating real, tangible social impact through theatre is at the very heart of the work we do. We create theatre with vulnerable groups such as survivors of abuse, sexual violence, discrimination, prejudice, and gender inequality to raise awareness and empower the women telling their stories. We also deliver ‘Drama for Wellbeing’ workshops to at-risk groups in the community, engage community groups to be empowered by theatre and help develop research. 

 

Our first project ‘Hear Her Roar’ highlighted Women’s real stories and raised awareness of women’s issues in our region. We produced a collection of new writing which was all written and directed by women. We collaborated with Newcastle Women’s Aid to raise awareness of domestic violence and delivered issue-based workshops to their female groups.

 

‘Hear Her Roar’ was voted one of The Guardian’s Readers’ Favourite Theatre productions of 2017;

“Hear Her Roar had passion, heartache, love and solidarity”.

 

NARC magazine also wrote, “It is clear that Hear Her Roar is an important and unquestionable success.” (April 2018).

Workie Ticket Theatre CIC was founded by JoJo Kirtley because she wanted to make a real impact on the theatre world her way, tell her story and enable others to tell theirs through theatre.
