FREE EVENT - Brought to you by GIFT (Gateshead International Festival of Theatre)

Newcastle trio Bonnie and the Bonnettes will be based at Thought Foundation for the day, sited within the current exhibition breastfeed and Boom,' where they will be working on their new show And She, exploring motherhood, femininity and reinvention. They will open up their rehearsal room between 10am-3pm inviting GIFT participants to drop in and share their stories and thoughts on motherhood.

Bonnie and The Bonnettes are a theatre company based in Newcastle. Their work combines multiple genres and mediums. They like it when audiences laugh. They like it when they think. They like it when they do both at the same time. They want to share stories, challenge perceptions, and have a good time whilst doing it. ​​  They are inspired by queer/drag/alternative performance, gender, sexuality, auto/biography, relationships, and music that makes your hips wiggle. Their work is loud, fun, and unapologetic!  

"The trio present a colourful united front against the world". (A Younger Theatre)
