About the Show/Event
Information for In the Family Way at Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield (Performance). Fallen women, wayward girls, whore and ner' do wells. These are just a few of the names given to describe young women who would find themselves needing the help of women's homes across the UK. You may not know that one of these homes was once located in what is now the LBT. The Women's Home in Huddersfield was quite revolutionary for its time and provided refuge for unwed, pregnant young women, many of whom had been cast out by their families and in desperate need of help and support. A group of creative people aged 16-25 have been working to bring these stories to life, putting you in the shoes of these women to experience what it would have been like to visit the Women's Home during it's existence. See the immersive, site-specific piece they have created at this unique event.
