Red Ladder Theatre Company present:
A one-woman suffragette musical written by Boff Whalley and directed by Red Ladder’s Artistic Director Rod Dixon, starring Kathleen Yore.
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 all women. After years of direct action, arrest, imprisonment and force-feeding, it seems their time has come.
Wrong ‘Un tells the adventurous story 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. A punchy musical drama that draws on class, privilege, hope and disappointment in wartime England.
