Joan Bryans creates a verbatim theatre piece from actual accounts of militant suffragettes in early 20th century England. A period piece that remembers a seminal moment of feminist history, the characters hail from all over the British Empire including Canada, India and England and even bring some musical numbers to the stage. It runs for the whole month in two different theatres. For more information, visit http://www.vitalsparktheatre.com.
