The Road Behind, The Road Ahead
The Road Behind, The Road Ahead is a unique project created by The Theatre Chipping Norton to explore the history of the Suffragette movement, and what it means to us today. In the age of #metoo and gender pay disputes, female equality remains one of the most hotly debated questions of our day.
Join us for an evening of rarely-seen drama from the Votes for Women movement – a stripped back production of short plays and songs that helped to shape public opinion and remain relevant, gripping and funny to this day.
The live performances are partnered with a thought-provoking photographic exhibition and originally commissioned pieces of sound-art and music that reflect on the experiences of equality from a range of contemporary women from across Oxfordshire. From teenagers to retirees, students to professionals, children to working mums, join us to reflect on how far we have come, and how far we still have to go.
