There Was A Little Girl - FemFest 2022

Sweet@The Poets - Main Room

Millie is not like other girls.
In fact, ever since she was little she actively traded in her fairy tales for mud, cut off all her golden ringlets and created her alter-ego, Michael. She’s about to learn what it really means to be one of lads, whilst she explores and subverts the insidious roots of gender stereotypes, turning what she thought she knew on its head. Join Millie (and Michael, of course) as they battle against the assumptions of their former selves, when being ‘not like other girls’ is not all that it seems. There Was a Little Girl is a witty, comedic and truthful insight into growing up opposing the female narrative from a self-confessed Tomboy. Developed with the support from Arts Council England and Creative Youth Network. Millie Wood-Downie is a writer, performer and producer from Brighton, currently based between Bristol and London. She strives to make work that finds new ways of approaching gender discourse whilst keeping the discussion accessible to all. Her work has been described as "intriguing, suspenseful and complex.”
★★★★ - Broadway Baby “This will be a show that is a force to be reckoned with.”
