Our anti-hierarchical post-show conversation circles where audience members can chat about their thoughts, emotions & responses to Bechdel-friendly shows. 

We offer an informal alternative to Curated Expert Panels and Q&As, which we’ve often found super alienating and where people often apologise for saying “this isn’t a question, but more of a comment”. More comments please!

Bechdel Circles take place in theatre bars, cafes, stages, and online. It is always free to attend for all ticket holders and the creative team. We also often arrange discount codes with theatres, to make it more affordable to see the shows we’re talking about.
