I Told You This Would Happen

May 27, 2015 - June 25, 2015

I Told You This Would Happen designed by Alison Neighbour

Presented with ARC Stockton
Designed by Alison Neighbour
Written and Performed by Kathryn Beaumont
Directed by Alex Swift

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.

Lewis Cuthbert of North East Review writes:

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.’
