EDI Information
In line with our EDI policy, we undertake an EDI impact assessment of all our artistic programming. '3 Women' by Katy Brand has a diversity message at its centre, including issues of gender identity. The playwright specifies that one character should be of mixed heritage and the story would be enhanced by looking for multi-ethnic and gender identity fluidity within casting.
