The unsung legacy of Jane Arden (1927-82) traverses the reaches of film and theater, encompassing film direction, screenwriting, playwriting, acting, as well as poetry and songwriting. After years spent working in television and theater, in the mid 1960s Arden became increasingly focused on feminism and the anti-psychiatry movement, shifting her output to stories centered on women and their societally imposed psycho-emotional burdens. Arden's reputation as a leading voice in the UK women's liberation movement solidified in the late 1960s and early 70s – she established the radical feminist theater group Holocaust, with Penny Slinger as a member, and wrote "A New Communion for Freaks, Prophets and Witches," a play that would soon be adapted into the psychedelic arthouse film THE OTHER SIDE OF THE UNDERNEATH
