MIKRON THEATRE COMES TO SALFORD WITH REVOLTING WOMEN
 

Star date: 23rd September 2018

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE WOMEN TO GET THE VOTE?

Revolting Women
Wednesday 3rd October 7:30pm 11/9
St Peter and Paul's Church, Park Road

The superb Mikron Theatre arrive in Salford with a story based around radical socialist suffragette, Sylvia Pankhurst, complete with songs, satire and top stagecraft, perfected over 47 tours. Vote with your feet and don't miss!

Full details here...


Everyone goes on about the Pankhursts but Sylvia tends to get left out. She was the socialist radical sista who fought for the vote alongside working women in the East End, and her story is being brought to life, complete with songs and satire, by Mikron Theatre in Revolting Women, coming to Salford on 3rd October.

"Revolting Women came out of my interest in Sylvia Pankhurst's story but I discovered along the way a campaign full of militant deeds and words, yes, but also one full of friendship, wit and humour, ripe for representation on a Mikron stage" says writer, Vashti Maclachlan.

The play sees Sylvia meet Lettie and together they head to Parliament, to bend the ear of the Cabinet in an effort to get the vote for women... 'A story of absolute commitment or dangerous obsession?' asks the blurb for the play.

"Sylvia was a radical socialist suffragist, she aligned herself with the women of East End London recognising the need for working class men and women to have a voice in Parliament and a vote" explains Marianne McNamara, Mikron's Artistic Director "One hundred years on, there is still so much inequality between men and women, between the rich and the poor and sadly the story remains relevant."

Mikron has done 47 tours all over the country, travelling by van and boat to unusual venues, and their productions always remain fresh and original. This is independent theatre of the highest quality. Don't miss!

This is such a great performance with the bonus of musical interludes, often humorous and surprising. It tells the serious story of Sylvia's committed struggle, not only against the injustices in working women's lives but also against the disapproval of her mother. The ingenious set changes ....often just with a hat ..are clever and very effective. I enjoyed it immensely.
