The Play’s not the Thing, the Girl is.


We all love to watch performers, but very few of us know what it’s like to be one. Helen Hamer knows, and she tells Contrarah…exactly what it’s like to work in the performing arts.

Helen discusses her journey from getting in to a prestigious drama school through to navigating the real-life casting process, and how much gender factors into every actress’s career.

Then Helen discusses playwriting and musical roles for women throughout history before showing a slew of recent movies that pass her new ‘Beyond Bechdel’ test.
