Dr Shah was part of a panel organised by COMMONS for Project Ovation, as part of the Vaults Festival to discuss the representation of working class women in British Theatre on the 14th of March, 2019, to consider:
How working-class women are typically represented in both classical and contemporary British theatre (and whether) these representations authentic?
Do they serve the complex and intersectional identities of women from working-class communities?
Or do they enforce damaging stereotypes which feed national assumptions about who these individuals are and the communities they come from?
