Wrong 'Un - A Suffragette's Story
On Saturday 8 March, the Red Ladder Theatre Company will present Wrong 'Un - A Suffragette's Story at the Lawrence Batley Theatre.
February 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 and imprisonment, it seems their time has come.
Annie Wilde, a Lancastrian mill-girl galvanised by a rousing mixture of injustice, conviction, self-doubt and fear journeys from schoolroom to prison cell and beyond in these troubled Edwardian times.
WRONG ‘UN, written by Boff Whalley, one of the founder members of anarchist pop group Chumbawamba, is a new musical drama that draws on class privilege, hope and disappointment in wartime England.
