Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. was scheduled to be performed April 12-26, 2020 as part of the 2019/20 Buddies in Bad Times Theatre season. The production has been postponed due the extraordinary circumstances we find ourselves in amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to sharing this play with Toronto audiences when we can do so in a way that ensures the health and safety of our artists and audiences.
In the meantime, please do consider donating to this campaign as your donations are even more necessary and impactful during these uncertain times.

Discord and Din Theatre is thrilled to be producing Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again., an explosive feminist text that unfolds as a series of provocations, tearing apart the language, structures, and ideas that keep women trapped within a patriarchal system.
Written by multi award-winning playwright Alice Birch, Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. is a bawdy, ferocious, and galvanizing call to action for a new feminism, one that redefines the way we think about womanhood in the 21st century.
You can help Discord and Din Theatre give this wildly experimental and internationally-celebrated play its Canadian premiere production, this April at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre!

About the Company…
Discord and Din Theatre produces Canadian and International plays that are artistically outcast and are created outside conventional narratives, seeking to push the boundaries of traditional theatrical conventions. We are particularly interested in theatre that is feminist, political, and activist, that focuses on stories and voices that are often excluded from mainstream narratives.
Founded in 2015 by Artistic Producer Jenna Harris, Discord and Din Theatre’s inuagural production was Mine at the Next Stage Theatre Festival. A new production of Mine is part of the 2019/20 Buddies in Bad Times season, directed by Evalyn Parry in March 2020. Discord and Din’s production of This is Where We Live, by Canadian-Australian playwright Vivienne Walshe, received the only 5N review from NOW Magazine at the 2015 SummerWorks Performance Festival. More recently, the Canadian premiere of British playwright Cordelia Lynn’s gut-wrenching Lela & Co. garnered Discord and Din a 2018 Dora nomination in the independent category for outstanding female performance.
Opening April 16, 2020, Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. is by far our most ambitious production to date.
We have been working for three years to bring this play to Toronto. We have received support from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Arts Council.
This Fundraising campaign is our final fundraising push!
Our goal is to raise $5,000 between February 24th and March 23rd (our second week of rehearsals!).
Funds raised from this campaign will go directly to the production, and specifically will support the creation and purchase of the set, costumes and props.
To show our profound gratitude, we will recognize and thank you for your support on our website and in our production programme.
Please note that although Discord and Din operates as a non-profit, we are not a registered charity and therefore cannot issue tax receipts.
To stay connected, please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and interest in this production. We can’t wait to see you at the theatre in April! Until then, #AlwaysBeRevolting.
