1993 – 2000
Stellar Quines was established in 1993 by Gerda Stevenson and a group of theatre practitioners to address the lack of opportunities for women in theatre. The creation of Stellar Quines was a direct response to Gerda’s experiences working with celebrated British feminist theatre company Monstrous Regiment and her vision for Scotland to have a theatre company that would consciously create opportunities for women in all areas of production.
The company’s first production was Night Sky by Susan Yankowitz, directed by Lynn Bains. It toured to Aberdeen, Ayr, Glasgow, St Andrews and Edinburgh during the spring of 1994. A full list of all our past productions can be found on the Shows section of the website.
