Dreadnought SW & Bristol Women’s Voice present The Cause for International Women’s Day

 

As part of its International Women’s Day weekend of activities, Bristol Women’s Voice is delighted to be welcoming feminist theatre company Dreadnought South West to The Bierkeller with their brand new, exciting suffrage play:

“The Cause – An Overture of Rebellion and Revolt”

1913. Revolution stings the air.

In an orchard two women meet in secret. Their actions have divided them. Divided a nation. Split their cause in two.

What happens when the two women are suffrage leaders; Emmeline Pankhurst and Millicent Fawcett?

‘The Cause’ considers the impact of a lifetime of political campaigning on an individual. Asking how far would you go for what you believe in?

A new play by Dreadnought South West. Written by Natalie McGrath and directed by Josie Sutcliffe. Join us for a dynamic reading of this new piece of work commemorating the centenary of the very first votes for some women, with a chance to discuss it afterwards in a post-show talk.

This very special, one-off theatre event is supported by the charity Bristol Women’s Voice and is part of BWV’s series of events throughout 2018 celebrating the centenary of (some) women finally receiving the vote.
