We are very excited to be heading back into the room for the making and premiering of No Way Out next year. It is an exciting, and I feel strangely daunting, time to be making a show with women, about women, for everyone. As women find the courage to speak out about abuses they have faced at the wondering hands and penises and the powerful, and the incredible collective anger and support for voices to be heard and believed (#metoo & #ibelieveyou,) and institutions being kicked into saying No and Enough and This will be cancelled and They will be investigated and Let's let them send themselves off to a retreat... change is happening and women are finding a way out (ding ding) of the systems and established institutions that have held them down for so long. But I am daunted by the power this feminist conch has recently obtained and how quickly things are changing because we are saying them out loud and clear. Now there is less need to bridge the 'this happens but it's okay and we don't blame you' gap and the 'here's what we're pissed off about but we don't want to offend you' gap, or the 'this happens and you won't believe me so we'll say it in a round about way' gap. In terms of this show, a lot more feels possible than it did 12 months ago when we began the research process, the status quo is shifting and there is a hunger for conversations around gender and inequality. Change is exciting - but it is also okay for it to be daunting.
