An amusing and thought provoking double bill spanning hundred years of wayward women and their dangerous ideas.

One hundred years of struggle with wayward women and their dangerous ideas


It is 1918 and Parliament is poised to grant what the suffragettes have been fighting for – votes for all women. After years of direct action, imprisonment and force-feeding, it seems their time has come.

A hundred years later, we can definitely say that our time has come. We’ve got the vote and the pill - we’ve never had it so good. And we’re moving forward.

Convicts and Lunatics is an amusing and thought provoking double bill spanning hundred years of wayward women with dangerous ideas. Red Ladder Theatre Company’s critically acclaimed one-woman musical drama Wrong ‘Un follows a Lancashire mill-girl’s journey from schoolroom to prison cell and beyond. A hundred years later, exciting new dance theatre company Gracefool Collective will bend over backwards, attempting to be 3-dimensional, high definition, water-drinking, salad-eating, moisturizing WO-men in This really is too much.
