Sylvia vs the Fascists
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.
