Deeds Not Words

In 2008 English Heritage commissioned us to create a play celebrating the Suffrage movement. Our play focused on events and characters linked to the Great Suffragette rally in Hyde Park in 1908.

We like to focus on the social element of an historical event, and so for this we looked at the lives of ordinary people, while also referring to the famous characters involved. The play was a 3 hander designed to work in any space and for any environment and as such we performed the play outdoors at a number of English Heritage sites over 2 years, including the Festival of History.

In 2009 we were privileged to be invited to perform the play to an invited audience in Parliament as part of a special Suffragette exhibition.
