Revolting Women at Pocklington Canal

Go outdoors to experience history

    Event Description

    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."

    Tickets are limited - call 01759 306070 to book.
