BARRY: A Work in Progress

Performed by: Shrinking Violet

Devised by the whole company


‘BARRY’ is a devised, verbatim piece.

Dr. James Barry is the epicentre of the production, around which contemporary experiences of gender, privilege and ownership are explored. He has been embedded in mainstream history as Edinburgh’s first ‘woman’ graduate.

‘BARRY’ takes issue with this.

Expect lip-syncing, music, dance and historical accuracy!
