I have been commissioned to create props for ‘Voters, Not Bloaters!’ community play about the suffragettes, which is being performed at St George’s Theatre, Great Yarmouth on Saturday 21st September. I will be working with the community group producing the performance to create a series of plaques and posters with suffrage slogans. There will also be suffragette marches as part of the Out There Festival in Great Yarmouth on the afternoon of Saturday 14th September from St George’s Theatre.
The performance has been written by Helen Vine, directed by Daisy Winchester and features a community cast and local choir. The play is part of 2019’s Heritage Open Days ‘People Power’ programme of events, which celebrate the ability of local communities, groups and individuals to evoke change.
