Oldham Coliseum Theatre's Main House Takeover Double Bill returns

Date published: 29 August 2019

Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) links two independent productions from this year’s Greater Manchester Fringe Festival due to double bill on the Coliseum’s historic stage as part of the theatre’s hugely successful Main House Takeover. 

Men Chase Women Choose by People Zoo Productions, one of the Coliseum’s Venues North supported shows at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, will be joined by the theatre’s Pick of the Fringe Award winner, Clouds by Time & Again Theatre Company on Friday 27 September.   

Chris Lawson, Acting Artistic Director of the Coliseum, commented, “The Coliseum is dedicated to supporting theatre makers creating fresh and interesting new work in our region. This year our Picks of the Fringe share messages of feminism – past, present and future – and science and education. The double bill is a brilliant opportunity for these companies and their shows to gain a bigger platform and a wider reach.” 

Men Chase Women Choose is a riotous romp through the history of the female body and the patriarchy intended on skewering widely held gender myths and unearthing the bad science behind them. 

A scientist and an arts student are tasked with a presentation on ‘the point of women.’ What begins as an attempt at a science and sociology lecture is derailed by the student’s dramatisation of their research.
