The Cause - An Overture of Rebellion & Revolt by Dreadnought South West 

Written by Natalie McGrath
Directed/Dramaturgy by Josie Sutcliffe

1913. Revolution stings the air.

In an orchard two women meet in secret. Their actions have divided them. Divided a nation. Split their cause in two.

What happens when the two women are suffrage leaders; Emmeline Pankhurst and Millicent Fawcett?

The Cause considers the impact of a lifetime of political campaigning on an individual.

Asking how far would you go for what you believe in?

Marking the centenary of the first votes for some women this is a play about two of its greatest rebels.
