2:30 pm - 4:00 pm GMT
This event is at Queen Square only
An introduction to the work of the AFL (Actresses’ Franchise League) and its contribution to the Campaign for Women’s Rights in the early years of the 20th century; many notable actresses turned to writing and producing with extraordinary success, though against considerable opposition from the established actor-managers. These plays, which stood to make the case for women’s suffrage, were enthusiastically received, then played up and down the country by individuals/women’s groups all bent on supporting the Cause. The talk will continue with an introduction to the most available of these and a reading of one of the most popular, A Chat with Mrs Chicky by Evelyn Glover.
It is hoped that attendees will be happy to participate and copies of the text will be available to all who book a place.
The title of this talk is attributed to the Pioneer Players, 1909-1914.
