The play has had a fantastic response from audiences during its tour of the South West and North West.
“I thought this imagined meeting was a wonderful way to explore these two women’s lives and campaigns. Hooray for two female leads and a subversive take on their relationship. I’m inspired to find out more about the history I thought I knew about. Thank you!”
This final performance is at Exeter Phoenix at 7.45 on Dec 14th. There’s more info and booking details here: https://www.exeterphoenix.org.uk/events/the-cause/. After the performance, you can join Dreadnought South West for celebratory events, with a party in the bar and great music by women.
‘The Cause’ considers the impact that a lifetime of political campaigning has on an individual and explores the divide between the violent direct action of the suffragettes and the peaceful constitutional means of the suffragists.
