Inspired by Judy Chicagos’ iconic feminist work The Dinner Party, five women form a consciousness raising group in 1979
40 years later they meet up again for the first time, against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement. How far have they departed from the feminist values they espoused as young women? What did they really feel about each other then, and what revelations emerge now ? These are some of the undercurrents that threaten to become explosive when they revisit their former selves 40 years on.
