Wrong ‘Un

9 June 2013 - 12 November 2016

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  2013. We’ve toured to some fantastic venues in autumn 2013 and spring 2014, and will continue to do so throughout the rest of this year. A full tour schedule is available below – please note: some dates will not currently feature booking links, these will be put on sale shortly.
