How to Be Brave - Dirty Protest
Written by Siân Owen

Touring Wales, March 2019
Do we get less brave as we get older?
Is that a thing?
Determined that her young daughter will never lose the powerful, fierce magic she arrived into the world with, Katie sets off on a mission to create an instruction manual titled, How to Be Brave.
This brand-new, one-woman play follows Katie’s journey as she gets on her old childhood BMX and rides around Newport to find what she’s really made of. By listening to the unheard voices of the city, she begins to ask what the women who have gone before can teach her about how to be brave in this confusing, fast-changing world we live in.
Experience a love story from writer Siân Owen, to Newport - the city that made her.
