    Event Summary

    Dreadnought South West present The Cause - a new play inspired by an imagined meeting between two great leaders of the women’s suffrage campaign on tour in the South West. The Cause depicts the explosive meeting of minds when Millicent Fawcett and Emmeline Pankhurst come together at a time when campaigns for women’s rights were at their most revolutionary & embattled.

    Written by playwright Natalie McGrath, and directed by Josie Sutciffe, The Cause explores the struggle, and the effects of campaigning for a cause by different methods. There was a divide between the violent direct action of the suffragettes and the peaceful constitutional means of the suffragists.

    The play is produced by Dreadnought South West, a charity which connects individuals and communities through telling great and courageous stories about women. With funding from Arts Council England, The Cause will tour the South West.

    Price: £12 / £10 concession
