Description

A powerful drama interspersed with original songs, looking at the lives of the main protagonists involved in the struggle for the vote between Emmeline Pankhurst’s Suffragettes and Millicent Fawcett’s Suffragists. Millicent and Emmeline were in many ways opposites and yet they both were working towards the same goal – not just the vote but equality for women. But would their rivalry prove the undoing of their national campaign and put an end to the dreams they both shared but wanted to achieve in very different ways? Told with humour and pathos.

The Feminist Fringe (4/5 stars) 115 days ago

nstantly captivating, the show begins with the introduction of our narrators who guide us through the momentous timeline of women’s suffrage. The passion of the cast is clear throughout the entirety of the show, drawing the audience into the story of the powerful women who shaped our history. Humour is perfectly balanced with the weight of the storyline, not just through telling the tales of the shocking misogyny these women suffered but acknowledging the everyday sexism women experience 100 years on.

Look for tickets... On 24 April 2018, I joined others for the unveiling of the first statue of a woman in Parliament Square.
