Journey through the intricacies of competition, delving into the innate human desire to compete and its dynamic intersection with feminism and representation in sports.

This thought-provoking dialogue promises to shed light on the diverse facets of competition and gender equality, as exemplified in OP’s upcoming production, Birds & Balls.
