Political campaigning and the individual

WHEN Dreadnought SW comes to the Lyric Theatre in Bridport on Tuesday 10th July, they will give two performances of their play The Cause 1913.

In an orchard two women meet in secret, Revolution is in the air. Their actions have divided them and divided the nation. The women are suffrage leaders and rebels Emmeline Pankhurst and Millicent Fawcett.

The play looks at the impact that a lifetime of political campaigning has on an individual. How far would you go for what you believe in?
