“Plays have done such a lot for the Suffrage,” said Dame Ellen Terry’s daughter, Edith Craig “They get hold of nice, frivolous people, who would rather die than go in cold blood to meetings. But they watch plays, and get interested, and then we can rope them in for meetings.”
A century after the landmark ruling giving women the right to vote, Studio celebrates the songs and plays written by the Actresses Franchise League and some of their famous literary supporters in the fight to turn public opinion and change British democracy forever.
Lesley Bates has compiled an evening of songs, sketches and playlets, a smidge of history and a smattering of music hall melodies, which will also showcase our entries to the Totton Festival of Drama 2018.
The Company includes: Sue Bale, Caroline Butcher, Camilla Burgess, George Cotterill, Alistair Faulkner, Jo Flindell, Rachel Fletcher, Tim and Val Greathead, Rowena Greenaway, Claire Jacobs, Kris Hamilton, Sarah Kirkpatrick, Louise Leavy, Linda Luetchford, Lorna Matthews-Keel, Lindy and Graham Paramor, Christina Reynolds, David Rhodes, Sarah Scutt, Sue Tranter and Emma Way.
