Theatre

Blue Stockings

By Jessica Swale
Directed by Martin Berry

It is 1896. Girton College, Cambridge, is the first college in Britain to admit women. They study ferociously and match their male peers grade for grade.

The men graduate, however the women leave empty handed, with nothing but the stigma of being a 'bluestocking' - an unnatural, educated woman.

Principle Welsh is determined to win the women the right to graduate, whatever the cost.

Set against the backdrop of women's suffrage, this is a moving, comical and eye-opening story of women's fight for education and self-determination.

 

Please note that Friday 12th May is a British Sign Language interpreted performance.
