Women@RADA is a grassroots collective founded by Natasha Rickman, Rhiannon Oliver, and Melanie Jessop and run by RADA students and graduates. It’s a forum for discussion of the issues around gender equality in the field of performance and brings together RADA graduates and students, both performance and technical, with industry professionals, all of any age and gender, to explore ways to address gender disparity. It also aims to develop and support the creativity of women across the industry. Events include: play readings, skills workshops, and professional development opportunities.
RADA is delighted to nurture and support this initiative.
The Women@RADA 100
Women@RADA 100 is a programme of rehearsed readings which was launched in January 2015. Women@RADA will be performing 100 play readings ranging from classics to new writing, with many authors able to attend to introduce and discuss their work. Woman@RADA endeavours to promote opportunities for women actors of all ages, directors and writers in today’s theatre.
Readings are free to attend and open to the public. Tickets can be reserved in advance a week before the show via the RADA website, or obtained on the door on the day of the reading (subject to availability, space is limited!).
All readings take place in the RADA Club Theatre (unless stated otherwise) at RADA Studios, 16 Chenies Street, WC1E 7EX.
