Nineties Woman – 2014 Edinburgh Fringe

Rosie Wilby was at York University in the early 90s and joined the women's collective which produced the student feminist paper, Matrix. Rediscovering her collection of the early issues over twenty years later, she wondered what had happened to the other women…

The show is a mix of her personal history (haircuts, sexuality and activism) and the search for the other members, and it's not a spoiler to say that many of them have changed quite a bit. One good surprise is that the work continues with current students producing Matrix Reloaded named as a tribute to their work rather than the awful film sequel.

3/5

On at the Voodoo Rooms (venue 68) until the 24th August (not the 11th).
