Barry is a devised verbatim piece about Dr James Barry. James Barry has been misrepresented in history as Edinburgh University’s first “woman” graduate. We take issue with this. Through Barry’s story we embark on a messy exploration of our own experiences of gender, privilege and ownership, leaving us questioning whether Barry’s story is even ours to tell. Expect lip-syncing, drag, music, big skirts, medical masks, lots of dancing and a handful of historical accuracy. Bringing the 19th Century into the present day, baby!
