We Want You To Watch
by Alice Birch and RashDash
for the National Theatre, 2015

“It’s young, raw, risky and edgy, it feels political and messes satisfyingly around with the theatrical form.”

This is a production of palpable feminist anger, ripping into pornography – and its toxic impact on society – with its teeth bared.”
  The Stage

We Want You To Watch turns out to be about as joyous and life-affirming an experience you can have in a theatre while the world is still in the miserable shape it’s makes a pretty compelling case that [pornography is] hardly the best thing in the world, and does table the more real worry that we have no idea what the effect of the super-proliferation of it will be on the world... it’s a hell of a compelling vision.”
