This radical adaptation, set in a nightclub populated with drag kings and gangsters, releases Shakespeare’s famous yet controversial play from its comedic origins to foreground Kate’s journey from strength and independence to being trafficked into a forced marriage. Mrs Pankhurst's Players is a new feminist theatre collective committed to making high quality, politically engaged, text-based theatre. With strong links to the Pankhurst Centre, the collective emerged from Edge Hill University's Drama programme to create theatre focused on foregrounding female experience.
