RED LADDER THEATRE COMPANY present WRONG 'UN - musical theatre about women's suffrage6:30 pm Holmfirth Parish Church, Towngate, Holmfirth HD9 1HAEvent Type:Theatre

Event Details

Britain’s leading radical theatre Company tells of the adventures of Annie Wilde, a Lancashire mill-girl galvanised by a rousing mixture of injustice, conviction, self-doubt and fear on her journey from the school room to prison cell and beyond. Set in 1918, and after several decades of protest and four years of bloody war, Parliament is poised to grant what the suffragettes have demanded and fought for – votes for all women. After years of direct action, arrest, imprisonment and force-feeding, it seems their time has come. A punchy one-woman musical drama, WRONG ‘UN, written by Boff Whalley and directed by Red Ladder’s Artistic Director Rod Dixon, draws on class, privilege, hope and disappointment in wartime England.

 

“…warm, likable and subversive… One hundred years on, the suffragette movement is still relevant” – The Stage

“…a sharp and intelligent musical” – The Guardian
