Wrong Un' - a one-woman musical written by Boff Whalley, directed by Red Ladder’s Artistic Director Rod Dixon.

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.

Wrong ‘Un has toured for five years – the longest tour in the history of the company. The show has played a wide range of spaces: theatre studios, pubs, village halls, trade union conferences, and even a tent at Shambala Festival. It is still in demand. This one woman show is a musical with no musicians – the performer takes on five different roles and sings all the songs unaccompanied! Kathleen Yore (of Odd Doll Puppetry) has taken on the challenging role of Annie Wilde which was originally written with and for Ella Harris.

Sunday 11 November. Doors open 6.30pm. Performance starts at 7.00pm. Tickets £6.00 each.

“…warm, likable and subversive… One hundred years on, the suffragette movement is still relevant.” The Stage

“…a sharp and intelligent musical.” The Guardian
