Wrong ‘Un opens with sell-out show at Leeds Big Bookend
Boff Whalley’s one-woman suffragette musical, Wrong ‘Un, opened to a sell-out audience this weekend at Leeds Big Bookend. The show, based upon a chest of letters that writer Boff found in his friend’s attic, will tour through the summer, playing at Hebden Bridge Arts Festival and Durham Miners’ Gala, before returning to Leeds in January 2014 for a run at The City Varieties.
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.
