acta Community Theatre’s ‘Forge theatre makers’ present ‘Toilet Story: a conversation behind closed doors’, for International Women’s Day 2024

A drop-in artistic installation will be open from 6pm with last entry at 8.30pm, with performances taking place throughout the evening. If you’d like to watch a performance, please ensure you book ahead.


Step past the gendered icons to enter into the public toilet. A complicated space fraught with tension, solidarity, moments of peace and relief, and more.

You’ll be guided through artistic interventions exploring womanhood through the lens of the public toilet and have the opportunity to witness a short performance to an extremely small audience.

Say a prayer at the shrine of Scarlett, patron saint of toilets, and listen to the stories of women from 3 different centuries. For this evening only, you are invited into their private space for a fleeting glimpse of their stories.

With only six tickets available per performance, this is a very limited offer. A tiered pricing structure of £3/6/9 has been designed to suit all budgets. Nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds. Please email rosa@acta-bristol.com if price is a barrier to you attending the performance.

All genders welcome. We would recommend this for people aged 14 or over.

Forge is a two-year theatre training led by women, for women. Since 2021, we have been introducing young women to a range of theatre skills, and then helping them specialise in a chosen aspect of the theatre-making field.
