BARRY

Performed by: Shrinking Violet

BY SHRINKING VIOLET 

Dr James Barry has been misrepresented throughout history as Edinburgh University’s first “woman” graduate.

We take issue with this.

Through Barry’s story, we embark on a messy exploration of our own experiences of gender,

privilege and ownership, leaving us questioning whether Barry’s story is even ours to tell.
