Whats On

Woman on Fire

Wednesday, 5 December 2018 - 7:30pm
 
WOMAN ON FIRE
 
An explosive one-woman show, celebrating the centenary of women first winning the right to vote.
 
Told through the eyes of unsung Lancashire suffragette, Edith Rigby, a mild-mannered doctor’s wife with a secret identity - arsonist, bomber and militant suffragette. Woman On Fire takes you into the blistering core of the UK suffrage movement - from Preston to Manchester, London to Glasgow and back.
 
Terrorist or impassioned freedom fighter? This dynamic solo-performance lets you decide.
 
Woman on Fire sheds light on suffragette history and the mystery that is Edith Rigby.
 
How far you will go for what you believe in?
 
Running time 75 minutes followed by optional Q&A with writer/director and performer.
Ages 14 +
 
‘Beautifully written and obviously well researched’ - Amnesty International
