A new play by Natalie McGrath celebrating the centenary of The Great 1913 Suffrage Pilgrimage, which saw thousands of women march across Britain to Hyde Park. The play looks at how women’s rights have changed in the last 100 years, how protest has changed and seeks to examine if there has been any realistic shift in power to ensure that women’s voices are heard in society. Oxygen will be performed at many of the stopping places along the original South West route from Land’s End to London. For more information see www.dreadnoughtsouthwest.org.uk
