After Graduating Drama Centre with a Masters in Acting I continued to work on stage and eventually co- founded Anonymous Is A Woman Theatre Company. We have been producing new writing for the last two years. I wrote F.A.N.Y (First Aid Nuring Yeomanry); a story centred around female ambulance drivers in World War One. Wee took F.A.N.Y on tour this year to the West Midlands and were lucky enough to be supported by Arts Council England. Currently working on 'Heavenly Bodies'.
About The Company:
Anonymous Is A Woman Theatre Company (AIAWTC) was founded by two Drama Centre London Graduates, Bips Mawson and Leila Sykes as a response to women's underrepresentation in society, history and thus in theatre. We make innovative, challenging and collaborative theatre with women at its centre. We work with established plays, adaptations & new writing to give voice to those who may not have been heard. We are feminists in the sense that we believe in equality between the sexes. This fuels our work by making us want to re-address the balance and representing women in theatre. The company works with male and female actors, directors and writers, and is female-centric only in the selection of its subject matter.
Our job is to tell the stories of women who otherwise may not be heard. We are dedicated to producing theatre that reflects herstory (as opposed to history) from the past and the present. We believe in women, from the unsung heroes of our national and international past to the high profile trailblazers of today.
Our goal is challenging, inventive and cutting edge theatre.
