‘Welcome everyone. Do take a seat, and enjoy the refreshments.
We’re here tonight to talk about the cause of women.
Quite simply, we’re here to change the world.’

Centring on the remarkable story of Wimbledon resident Rose Lamartine Yates, this new play, by acclaimed playwright Beth Flintoff, is an impassioned, unsentimental and sharp-witted tribute to the Suffragette cause in this centenary year.
