Birth Festival at the Royal Exchange

“Each year, millions of women and children die from preventable causes. These are not mere statistics. They are people with names and faces.” Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General


Seven countries.
Seven female playwrights.
One global controversy.
A world of debate.
19–22 October 2016
Royal Exchange Theatre

B!RTH is an international theatre festival developed by the Royal Exchange Theatre and The Oglesby Charitable Trust 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 has commissioned seven leading female playwrights from across the globe (Kenya, India, China, Syria, UK, USA and Brazil) to explore this issue through their country’s approach to childbirth.

Part of Manchester’s year as European City of Science 2016, B!RTH is a series of theatrical events and debates bringing together leading voices from the world of science, art, academia, politics and charities, at the Royal Exchange, the UK’s Regional Theatre of the Year.
