I like being me…
What do I like about being a woman?
LADY BITS is a verbatim style musical using the words of real womxn to shine a light on the collective experiences of women in contemporary society. This mini musical was originally created for the “Notes To Self” module on the BA Musical Theatre course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Every word in the piece was said by a real person, including every umm, er, and fuck. The process involved interviewing a wide range of womxn from different backgrounds, who are all of different ages and are from all around the world. From hours of interviews a collection of vignettes and songs was put together covering topics from motherhood to abuse. LADY BITS is a heartfelt, honest and sometimes painful exploration about what it means to be a woman today.
LADY BITS was devised by an all-female creative team who wanted to expand the definition of musical theatre and create something raw, honest and heartfelt to ask difficult questions of both men and womxn of what womanhood means today and how/if contemporary society can learn from individuals’ experiences.
LADY BITS is currently a work in development so we welcome feedback from this sharing as part of ShoutOut Festival.
