Women of Bristol Old Vic

In time for International Women’s Day, Bristol Old Vic is launching a series of interviews and stories based on women from the theatre's past and present. The sound installation, Women of Bristol Old Vic, brings the voices of women in theatre to the front of the stage and celebrates their achievements across theatrical history.

The seven installations combine archive material, oral histories and locations across the theatre’s foyer. There are seven QR codes, which can be found throughout Bristol Old Vic’s foyer, and each unlocks a story about the women of the theatre, from the first female theatre manager Sarah Macready (who is included in volume one of my book The Women Who Built Bristol) to Wise Children’s artistic director Emma Rice.
