Barn Theatre Club presents
A funny, romantic and shocking look at a key episode in the battle for equality
In 1896 at Cambridge University something is unsettling and utterly baffling the young men: the women are revolting.
With the feminist and suffragette movement building momentum, a small group of determined educationalists and aspiring students are campaigning for young women to have the right to graduate. What they come up against is the prevailing wind of the day; science that tells them too much education could wither their wombs, and a social stigma that academic achievement leads to loss of femininity, along with any chance of marriage, a family or any normal life.
This is a story of young women, ordinary in their desires, but extraordinary in their place in history. It shows us where we have come from, and challenges us to look at where we are now. Originally produced at London’s Globe Theatre, Blue Stockings is a shocking and stirring new play which will send you out of the theatre feeling elated, appalled, and thoroughly educated.
