The ‘Calm Down, Dear’ 2020 festival of feminism seeking applications/ devised work

Camden People’s Theatre are staging their seventh ‘Calm Down, Dear’ festival of feminism from May 11th – May 30th 2020. It is a unique three-week celebration of innovative feminist performance. Past hits include Louise Orwin’s Pretty Ugly (2013), Sh!t Theatre’s Women’s Hour (2014), Snuffbox Theatre’s Blush (2016), and Racheal Ofori’s So Many Reasons (2018).

This year, in partnership with UCL Culture’s Performance Lab, works will be  presented in the Bloomsbury Theatre and Studio. Through the collaboration, links will be drawn between the festival programme and the world-class research taking place at UCL.

What are they looking for?

  • New work
  • Devised, self-made and solo work
  • Formally and/or politically radical work
  • Work that engages new audiences
  • and work for our UCL Culture strand (see the application form for more details).

Please note: They are unlikely to consider: ‘plays’ as traditionally understood; ‘new writing’; formally
conventional work; straight monologues; or any work made according to the usual writerdirector-actor hierarchies. NB they cannot accept scripts as part of your application.

How to submit?

Please read the call-out information document and apply via the google form which can be found inside.


Deadline: Monday 13th January, 10am.
