‘Welcome everyone. Do take a seat, and enjoy the refreshments.
We’re here tonight to talk about the cause of women.
Quite simply, we’re here to change the world.’
Centering on the remarkable story of Wimbledon resident Rose Lamartine Yates, this new play by acclaimed playwright Beth Flintoff, is an impassioned, unsentimental and sharp-witted tribute to the Suffragette cause in this centenary year.
“My infant son is eight months old…when the boy grows up he might ask me, 'What did you do, mother, in the days of the women's agitation, to lay their grievances before the Prime Minister?’"
A cast of three women, a handful of props and original music, bring this incredible story vividly to life for the first time, in an imaginative, theatrical and entertaining production by Attic Theatre Company.
