“Only seeing 1 type of sex in mainstream media influenced my opinion on what sex should be like”.
Do you wish your sexual perspectives, opinions and experiences were more accurately represented? Do you want to learn and talk more about your relationship with sex? Do you want to discover a new creative process?
Then come and join multi-award winning Playwright, Sophie Swithinbank, in our Creative Writing workshop - a shame-free space for women and non binary first-time Writers of all ages and backgrounds to openly explore sex.
Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to join the project as part of the play’s Community Writing Team, mentored by Sophie and gaining their first industry Writing credit.
We want these workshops to reach people from different backgrounds so that we can represent as many unheard perspectives as possible: ages, races, religions, economic backgrounds, disabilities and conditions. However, the workshops are only for those that identify as women or non binary.
RSVP for your workshop place here.
A Play About Sex is an entirely community-responsive project, created from the anonymous stories of 945 women and non binary people around the UK.
As heard on BBC Radio 4’s Woman's Hour, the play will redress the balance of sexual narratives accurately represented in our dominant cultural narratives.
N.B. HFH Productions is a feminist organisation commited to championing underrepresented stories. We are not interested in giving space to any opinions that are discriminatory or create room for the perspectives of perpetrators.
