Salon de la Vie – You Can’t Read That!

17th June 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 7:50 pm

Donations welcome!

What do Radclyffe Hall, DH Lawrence and chocolate have in common?

Pull up a chocolate brownie (we love this Vegan Society recipe), pull down the blinds and let’s talk banned books – tell us, what’s your favourite? Why was it banned? Is it still?

Message us and then join the conversation and cabaret on June 17th from 7.30 on Facebook Live for readings from two of the most controversial banned books ever to hit the UK courts, to hear about the love that dare not speak its name and the woman who risked her career to write about it in this weeks salon and to find out what Janelle Monae, Rachel Bloom and DH Lawrence have in common!
















Salon de la Vie is Scary Little Girls’ contribution to fun and feminism in a time of COVID-19!

Our fortnightly 15 -20 minute extravaganzas of songs, storytelling, merriment and conversation, focus each time on an awe-inspiring, remarkable and brave woman from the world of film, music, literature and history, drawing parallels with the achievements of activists today, to celebrate how people positively embody the change they want to see in the world, for themselves and for others. We’re super proud that each salon has a custom illustration provided by the wonderful Jacky Fleming.

Scary Little Girls is a vibrant, hard-working production hub whose commitment and passion for theatrical and artistic storytelling is borne out by the variety of scary little work we have created and the support we have from our scary little artists and audiences.

Come along every other Wednesday evening to join in with our singing, celebration and joy!

We’d like to thank our amazing funders Arts Council England, Cornwall Council and Feast for supporting this project
