A moving, comical and eye-opening story of four young women fighting for education and self-determination against the larger backdrop of women’s suffrage. Cambridge 1896, and Girton College, home to the country’s first female students, is an object of annoyance and derision to the rest of the university. The year’s intake of new women face economic difficulty, the distractions of men and radical politics, and the jaw-dropping prejudice that blights every aspect of academic life. Meanwhile, there looms the prospect of a controversial vote to decide if these ‘blue stockings’ should be allowed to graduate. The first full-length play by NELL GWYNN scribe Jessica Swale.
Tickets $30 general admission, $25 seniors, $15 students/military.
Performances Thurs-Sat at 7:30pm and Sun at 3:00pm through Sun Oct 13, plus industry night Monday Sept 30 at 7:30pm
