With the actions of Harvey Weinstein hitting the headlines in recent weeks a piece dealing with sexual harassment in the workplace could not be timelier. Pour and Serve, created and performed by Manchester theatre maker Caitlin Gleeson, explores the unseen acts of aggression and unwanted attention that bar staff have to deal with on an almost daily basis.

Sexual harassment is, unfortunately, a huge problem in the UK: more than half of women experience it during their careers. But rather than producing a polemic piece, Gleeson instead examines personal stories. This humanises what might otherwise be an overwhelming topic, making it relatable and, hopefully, stimulating conversations beyond the show itself.

Pour and Serve is part of On The Verge Festival – which places theatre productions in unusual spaces – and takes place, appropriately enough, in a bar. Part of a double bill with Under my Skirt, for £5.50 you get two plays, a free drink and plenty of food for thought – a pretty good deal if you ask me.
