Women You Know Company Women You Know



Women You Know, the sell-out show, is coming to the Edinburgh Fringe! Follow two women in their 20s dissecting their sexual encounters from school and university. It has been the case, culturally, that the adolescent experiences of women’s sexuality have been narrated by boys in school locker rooms and in crude university hall WhatsApp group chats. Women You Know reclaims these stories. For every male protagonist trying to get laid, there’s a woman and her friend, that have been left unwritten, laughing about his advances the morning after. This play offers solidarity for women in a society that perceives sex through male eyes, as Margaret Atwood put it, “You are a woman with a man inside watching a woman. You are your own voyeur”. Women You Know is frank and brutally honest, hailed by critics ‘an hour of wry, bombastic humour, sardonic wit, chagrin, and sexual frustration’.

This show was part of our Edinburgh Fringe 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
