Friday 13 May 2022

6.30pm – 9.00pm

Join us for the official launch of the Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival 2022 and exclusive teaser of I’m With her.

Enjoy a selection of Clairault Streicker wines and delicious canapés to the sounds of Radio Margaret River followed by our Welcome to Country from Undalup Association and official addresses.

Then we hand over the stage for a taste, a tease, a provocation from the new stage play I’m With Her by Victoria Midwinter Pitt. In the era of #MeToo, millions of women are sharing their experience of abuse and discrimination. But inside all our stories there’s a part we don’t always tell—a seed of heroic resistance. Eight extraordinary Australian women give a thrilling real-life demonstration of the power of women to outlast, outwit and out-muscle the great ugly beast of sexism.
