CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
About the Show/Event
Information for Sylvia vs the Fascists at Bread and Roses, Inner London (Play). 1930s England. As the British government strikes bargains with Hitler and Mussolini the nation's own fascists are on the march. While the authorities turn a blind-eye to the threat, one person is ready for battle. Sylvia Pankhurst. Feminist. Activist. Champion of Justice. Sylvia vs the Fascists tells the story of Sylvia Pankhurst, who stood up against a British Establishment so afraid of socialism that it appeased the fascists on its own doorstep. A surreal, unconventional, and often comic retelling of a past we hear little about, but now seem close to repeating. A story of one woman's fight-back that's as relevant today as it was back in the day. History not as it was, but surely as it was meant to be.
Approximate runtime 55minutes (including any interval).
