The Compact Cabaret - T01716953330The one woman show brings together the words and music of some of our greatest writers and composers, to create an inspiring 90 minute whistle-stop tour that illustrates the journey taken by women during the last century and up to now. The performance starts with the steely determination of the early suffrage movement and moves onto the tough world wars when women were used initially as recruiting sergeants in the music halls and then as munitions workers in the factories. Tribute is paid to some of the century’s greatest writers including Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw and Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst, as well as modern playwrights and poets. The production comes to dramatic climax in our own modern, but just as demanding and challenging time. The show also features wonderful songs, both comic and soulful, ranging from Victorian melodrama to ‘60’s protest numbers.Performer Fiona-Jane Weston.
