CONQUEST

by Katie Caden

VAULT Festival 2018 & The Bunker 

A chance meeting in a pharmacy. Alice is looking for the morning after pill. Instead she meets Jo, and is drawn into a world of radical, female activism.

 

Welcome to Conquest: the world’s first revenge cupcake company.

 

Conquest is a funny and honest exploration of sexual consent and the minefield of today’s feminism. With sex education repeatedly on the agenda in parliament and evidence of sexual misconduct continually re-surfacing in the media, this is a timely piece reflecting on consent and the inequalities women still face in the bedroom.

Conquest is the debut show from PearShaped, developed as part of Soho Theatre’s Writers Lab.
