INTRODUCING THE PROGRAMME: From the cotton mills of the Lancashire hills to the big smoke of London, we follow a young mill worker, Annie, as she fights for her right to vote. However, the fight for change is never easy, and Annie must learn to defend herself and her fellow suffragettes from those that seek to stop them, realising that being small doesn’t mean you can’t change the world. Inspired by the real lives of suffragettes, this is the story of a movement that divided the nation and helped win the fight to give women the vote!
Combining original music, puppetry and some graphic novel style ‘Ka-Pows!’, Suffrajitsu shows you that you too can change the world, no matter who you are.
Performances take place at Burnley Youth Theatre (@burnleyyouththeatre) and The Garage, Brierfield (@insitu_pendle). Find out more about performance times and tickets by visiting the link in our bio.
