Rebel Women by Joan Bryans
Directed by Sarah Arnold
October 12 – 27, 2018
This is the 100th anniversary of the Vote for Women. How did the #MeToo movement really start? In early 20th century Britain the front line of the militant suffragettes contained a motley bunch of women. They were called to battle by a diminutive, delicate lady, as battle-scarred and hardened as any grunt. Join her and the other rebels as they are swept up in the maelstrom that will alter their lives forever, cause governments to fall and shape democracy for us all.
Rebel Women is a theatre verbatim play: the women’s actual words and songs, insightful, sometimes hilarious and always searingly truthful, are used to create the play.
