I Told You This Would Happen
May 27, 2015 - June 25, 2015
This new show takes a look behind the scenes of the ‘boy meets girl’ story:
less Rom Com, more Rom Con.
A story about relationships, life scripts and the manosphere.
If love is blind, I’m about to take your blindfold off…
First performed in 2014 to critical acclaim, I Told You This Would Happen is an ‘honest, brutal and real’ story which exposes society’s tolerance of everyday misogyny.

Harry Potter actor Emma Watson recently gave a speech at the UN, launching the HeForShe campaign to ‘end gender inequality’, in which she pondered the demonization of feminism in the press and wider social media. ‘Why has the word become an uncomfortable one?’ she asked. Kathryn Beaumont’s blog responded: ‘Because feminism is holding up a big shiny mirror to society and reflecting uncomfortable ideas like power and violence and oppression back at a world that would prefer to think of itself as having dealt with all that in the sixties.’
