Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale

Headgate Young Company

“A woman who expends her energy exercising her brain does so at the expense of her vital organs, leaving her unfit for motherhood”

Blue Stockings is set at the close of a century when, although the most powerful figure in the world was a queen, most women had fewer freedoms than ever before. We follow the fortunes of 4 fictional young girls at the progressive girls’ college Girton. Girls who, despite their academic excellence, were denied the same opportunities as their male counterparts. And those who helped them were penalised.

This is the first production from Headgate Young Company, with all performance and creatives delivered by young people aged between 16-21.

Tickets: £12, £10 under 21’s
