“They echo the Guerrilla Girls, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger; feminist artists who have protested the injustices of the world through words …”

Power Play runs studies and campaigns to provide theatre activists with a clear, nuanced picture of how inequalities are operating. It is almost impossible for gatekeepers to target a problem that nobody fully understands: without the data, it is also challenging to keep track of progress. 


Our study into Gender at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe was the first of its kind worldwide to investigate gender at the Fringe’s career-level. This was produced alongside a campaign spreading the already-existing facts and figures. We are currently working on two much bigger studies, to continue building a picture of how gender impacts career progression and industry culture.
