Wrong ‘Un

9 June 2013 - 31 July 2014

A new one-woman suffragette musical written by Boff Whalley and directed by Justin Audibert.

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 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.

Wrong ‘Un opened to a great reception at the Leeds Big Bookend festival on 9 June then went on to Hebden Bridge Arts Festival and Unite’s Women’s Week in Eastbourne.  We’re touring to some fantastic venues in autumn 2013 and spring 2014, click on ‘see more’ for the full list of dates – please note tickets for some 2014 dates are not yet on sale, but please keep checking back as we’ll add the link to the venue booking page as soon as they are.
