Darlinghurst Theatre Company presents the world premiere of the landmark production - I'm With Her.  Directed by Victoria Midwinter Pitt, I'm With Her is a compelling collection of real-life stories from remarkable Australian women. From bartenders and Prime Ministers, to world champion athletes and nuns, these are stories of resilience and resistance in the age of #MeToo and #Time’sUp.

‘Every great social justice movement has started with … people sitting in a circle, telling their personal stories that they think only happen to them … and realizing that if it’s happening to all these unique people, it’s political.’ – Gloria Steinem

This is what #MeToo and Time’s Up have been about - that it’s not just me, it’s all of us. It’s political.

Told from the true stories of ordinary and extraordinary women, I'm With Her uncovers the brave, ingenious and darkly funny ways women have survived, outlasted, outwitted and outmuscled the patriarchy.

We are thrilled to announce the involvement of nine women, whose stories have never-before-been told on the Australian stage. They include: 

 

 


Dr. Anne Aly, Counter Terrorism Expert and Labor MP
Julie Bates AO, Sex Worker Rights Activist and Sex Worker
Dr. Marion Blackwell, Environmental Scientist
Pam Burridge, World Champion Surfer
The Hon Julia Gillard, Australia's first female Prime Minister
Nikki Keating, Bartender and Anti-Sexual Harassment Campaigner
Prof. Marcia Langton AM, Foundation Chair of Australian Indigenous Studies, University of Melbourne 
Sister Patricia Madigan, Catholic Nun
Erin Phillips, Champion Footballer 

Led by award-winning documentary filmmaker and writer Victoria Midwinter Pitt (Afghanistan: Inside Australia’s War, Leaky Boat, Rampant: How a City Stopped a Plague)I'm With Her shares exquisite accounts by women for everyone.

Some are small, private victories, some are very public triumphs, but when we piece them together, they tell us something really interesting. We’ve seen the wider fabric of the dreaded patriarchy. This show is about the wider fabric of the strengths it has taken us to keep fighting it: wit, guts, guile, acute emotional intelligence, and a very healthy appetite for counter-attack." – Victoria Midwinter Pitt.
