Now in it's fifth year, The Perception Festival will return to Omnibus theatre in Clapham this week.
Over the next month, six shows will play under the theme of 'Nasty Women'.
The performances explore everything from the criminal justice system, to pop icons, and a new take on the tragic tale of Miss Havisham.
We've been speaking to the creators of two of the plays - 'I'd Rather Go Blind', and 'Femme Fatale'.
The Perception Festival: Nasty Women is on at the Omnibus Theatre throughout October.
