Shoulder to Shoulder

Throughout 2018, there have been many special anniversaries in the journey for the rights of women in British Society.  To celebrate and mark these anniversaries, venues, theatre companies and community groups from across Oxfordshire, Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire have come together to create 5 new exciting performances that seek to measure the impact of the last 100 years of social and political change for women – from the Suffragettes to the #MeToo movement.

This performance showcases the 2 projects that have been developed in Milton Keynes.  Paper Birds (one of the UK’s leading verbatim-based theatre companies) have been developing a new play with Peppers Ghost inclusive theatre company that explores women’s attitudes and feelings towards democracy now. Do women now feel included, empowered, listened to?   Stantonbury School & Zoo Co Theatre Company (an award winning contemporary theatre ensemble with a strong visual aesthetic) have created a new piece that explores the suffragettes and their legacy in a ‘total theatre’ style. 

Following this show, both groups will go onto to perform at a special celebration event at the Royal and Derngate in Northampton on Sun 21st Oct.

Tickets £10 - Concessions £8
