Looking forward to being a part of this rehearsed reading project in October celebrating the centenary of the first votes for women.

"The Road Behind, The Road Ahead is a unique project created by The Theatre Chipping Norton to explore the history of the Suffrage movement, and what it means to us today. In the age of #metoo and gender pay disputes, women’s equality remains one of the most pressing issues of our day.


Between 1900 and 1920 there were over 400 female playwrights working in Britain. Join us for an evening of these half-forgotten voices from the Votes for Women movement – a stripped back programme of short plays, songs and music that helped to shape Edwardian public opinion and remain relevant, gripping and funny to this day."
