Wrong ‘Un – A Suffragette Story

Red Ladder Theatre Company

A one-woman musical written by Boff Whalley and directed by Rod Dixon.

February 1918, and after several decades of protest and four years of bloody war, Parliament is poised to grant what the suffragettes have demanded and fought for – votes for women.

After years of direct action, arrest, imprisonment and force-feeding, it seems their time has come.

Wrong ‘Un tells of the adventures of Annie Wilde, a Lancashire mill-girl galvanised
by a rousing mixture of injustice, conviction, self-doubt and fear on her journey from schoolroom to prison cell and beyond in a musical drama that draws on class, privilege, hope and disappointment in wartime England.

Suitability: Suitable for ages 11+
