Post-Workers Theatre host an event which will begin to re-imagine the iconic Suffrage play A Pageant of Great Women, 1909, for a 21st century non-binary context.

The Play, written by Ciceley Hamilton in 1909, was a popular allegorical work of political agitation and featured the embodiment of Justice, Woman and Prejudice, with a cast of 45 historic great women to promote a feminist perspective on emancipation.

For the Launch of LGBTQ+ Season at The Place, Post-Workers Theatre and Bedford Creative Arts will be joined by a panel of guest writers, critics, practitioners and community activists to collectively discuss and consider a new cast of iconic great people who can begin to represent the values and ideals of a diverse 21st century LGBTQ+ community.

A reading of the original script will be followed by discussions and collective brainstorming, working with actors, activists and designers to creatively engage with hopes, fears and ideas of alternative narratives.

Note that this show is suitable for children 12+.
