In May 2020, Camden People’s Theatre stages its seventh ‘Calm Down, Dear’ festival of feminism. This unique three-week celebration of innovative feminist performance – featuring some of the UK’s most exciting artists – is a highlight of the independent theatre calendar. Past CDD hits include Louise Orwin’s Pretty Ugly (2013), Sh!t Theatre’s Women’s Hour (2014), Snuffbox Theatre’s Blush (2016), and Racheal Ofori’s So Many Reasons (2018).
This year’s ‘Calm Down, Dear’ festival will include a strand in partnership with UCL Culture’s Performance Lab. As part of this, work will be presented in the Bloomsbury Theatre and Studio, and links will be drawn across the CDD programme with world-class research taking place at UCL.
Calm Down, Dear’ 2020 takes place from May 11 – 30, 2020.

- New work
- Devised, self-made and solo work
