Famous women you've never heard of.
about the production
If you did something extraordinary, would you be remembered? If you stood up to injustice - and won. Defeated undefeatable empires. Broke every rule of gender, race, and class. Established your own culture or shadow government. Became famous beyond your wildest dreams. Would history remember you? For many extraordinary women, the answer is no. Presenting Renegades: famous women you’ve never heard of. A solo show by award winning poet and theatre maker Nina Telegina, which brings you a history more exciting than fiction. In their day, they were famous. Now they are forgotten. It’s time to bring their memory back.
