BIRTH is a global theatrical project designed to provoke debate on a global scale and question one of the key issues of our time, the vast inequality in healthcare across the world.
The Royal Exchange Theatre commissioned seven leading female playwrights from across the globe (Brazil, China, India, Kenya, Syria, UK and USA) to explore this issue through their country’s approach to childbirth.
These plays are currently available for charities, NGOs and educational organisations to use as tools in classrooms, lectures, conferences and communities settings to raise awareness, encourage debate and share knowledge. Please fill in your information in the short form in the right hand column to receive the plays.
Emma Callander is the Creative Director for BIRTH.
BIRTH is a creative partnership between the Centre for Maternal and Newborn Health at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, the Royal Exchange Theatre supported by The Oglesby Charitable Trust.
