We are pleased to be working in partnership with Tara Finney Productions and York Theatre Royal on the research and development of this new play, written by our Co-Director Hannah Davies, and starring Barbara Marten (People Places and Things, Everything is Possible, Casualty, Band of Gold, The Mill). The peice was co-conceived by Davies & Marten and is directed by Eleanor Rhode.
Somewhere in a small Northern town a woman walks into her constituency office and asks for help. Meanwhile in Westminster a woman prepares to stand up and address the House…
There are 650 seats in the House of Commons, of these 208 are held by women. Maiden Speeches is inspired by the challenges facing outspoken women everywhere. A new play about being bold, speaking out and not giving up.
There will be a public reading of this timely and urgent new play in Spring 2018. Booking details coming soon.
