A chance meeting in a pharmacy. Alice is looking for the morning after pill, instead she meets Jo, and is drawn into a world of radical, female activism. Welcome to Conquest: the world’s first revenge cupcake company.
Described as Fight Club meets Calendar Girls, Conquest is a funny and honest exploration of sexual consent and the minefield of feminism today. With sex education repeatedly on the agenda in parliament and evidence of sexual misconduct continually re-surfacing in the media, this is a timely piece reflecting on consent and the inequalities women still face in the bedroom.
Conquest is the debut show from PearShaped, developed as part of Soho Theatre’s Writers Lab and supported by Old Vic New Voices.
