The origin story of Britain; founded by Brutus, is well known. But there is an earlier, alternative female-born story. In this pre-show talk to MYTHS hosted by Reclaim Blackpool, we will explore the modern day parallels of representation of women in mythology and how the experiences of today’s Blackpool women have informed this performance based on myths from the past.
