a new networking organisation for female playwrights
17percent is a social enterprise which aims to redress the gender imbalance of plays being produced in the UK, by providing women with opportunities to develop as writers, through peer-to-peer networking and educational opportunities, championing womenís achievements in the theatre, promoting female writers and providing positive female role models and inspirations.
We will do this through:
1) Peer to peer education, networking and support: A series of education and networking opportunities including courses, feedback and mentoring.
2) Promotion of female playwrights: To promote the work of female playwrights amongst the UK theatre industry and to audiences, new and existing, through promotion of their work, and education about their work, including the creation of a comprehensive searchable online database of UK female playwrights from Aphra Behn to Polly Stenham. We will instigate a new short festival of plays by women.

Bellow Fellows really is open to any man. A common story from new singers is their fear of coming along to the first session, but then how glad they were to bite the bullet by turning up.
Many of us haven't sung since we were at school; the good news is that no experience is required to turn up and you do not need to be able to read music.

Join BROS TC and you wonít regret it. You will become part of a very special society which prides itself on producing high quality shows again and again. Many of us have been members for decades. We have made life-long friends and have relished the opportunity to try our hand at a variety of roles both on stage and behind the scenes.
If you are a performer, do not be afraid to audition for our next production. We always cast at least one, sometimes several, new members in our shows. If you are unsuccessful in your first audition, there are many ways you can be involved in the current show and then try your hand again next time. We have an exciting programme of shows ahead.
People are pleasantly surprised how quickly they become part of the team. If you are lacking in confidence or skill, BROS is a great place to learn and improve: many of our members have professional qualifications/experience to share. If you would like to direct or act as production manager, choreograph or musically direct, we\íd love to hear from you. BROS TC always welcomes new talent.
If you are not a performer, you may like to get stuck in making/sourcing costumes, designing/building set, managing props, sound or publicity. Perhaps you\íd like to be on the stage crew or front of house?
Even if you do none of those things; enjoying our social events, attending some rehearsals and joining the theatre trips are very good reasons alone to join BROS TC.
