Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again by Alice Birch
September 15-29, 2018
A wildly experimental and inventive new play that does not behave. Playwright Alice Birch has put together a grouping of vignettes that ask how to revolutionize language, relationships, work, and life in general while bursting at the seams of conformity.

"InnerMission co-artistic directors Carla Nell and Kym Pappas are committed to producing diverse new work and “Revolt” is one of the most provocative and experimental pieces they’ve ever staged."
-Pam Kragen, San Diego Union Tribune
If you want to sit passively in a theater and watch a play then InnerMission’s new production of "Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again." is not for you.
InnerMission describes itself as “driven to tell stories that grab you and shake your insides.” Revolt She Said Revolt Again does just that with its experimental, and inventive collection of vignettes.

The modern female is the unhappy recipient of the spoils, dealing as best she can with a wholly inadequate social framework that weaponizes language and, too often, turns her against herself. Director Kym Pappas has built a stylized, highly efficient ensemble culture around Birch’s harangues — what appears to be an ultimatum is just as often an admission of guilt and a cry for help.
-Martin Jones Westlin, San Diego Story
In a world where women are still expected to look pretty, face their attackers with civility and embrace pain, this play refuses to behave. Forced to face my own demons, I came in damaged but I left fortified.
