Mikron Theatre Company will perform an outdoor evening performance of Revolting Women at Pocklington Canal.
It tells the Suffrage story through the eyes of lesser-known Pankhurst, Sylvia, who fought for the vote alongside working women in the East End.
The performance is full of music and political satire, and demonstrates a continuous and momentous movement in history.
Marianne McNamara, Mikron's Artistic Director, explains why she has commissioned Revolting Women: "Sylvia was a radical socialist suffragist, she aligned herself with the women of East End London recognising the need for working class men and women to have a voice in parliament and a vote. 100 years on, there is still so much inequality between men and women, between the rich and the poor and sadly the story remains relevant."
