Emma20160223

Second of three new plays charting British feminism through three generations of women. By Lucy Catherine. Today's drama is the story of an ambitious young career woman, whose idealism is challenged when she encounters the seedier side of politics in the 1990s.

Emma is now in her twenties and, despite her unsettled childhood, has soared academically and is now a policy advisor to New Labour. She's on course to career success and, she believes, to changing the world. But when she catches the attention of senior party figure, Mac, she has to contend with regressive attitudes to women in the workplace.

Susan20160222

First of three new plays charting British feminism through three generations of women. We begin in 1975 with a frank exploration of the era's changing ideas about marriage, independence and female sexuality.

Birmingham, 1975. Susan makes the radical decision to leave her husband and take her two children, Emma and Tim, to live in a commune. When this first commune doesn't work - largely because commune life begins to mimic the gender power structures of the outside world - Susan feels compelled to move to an all-female commune. But this means leaving her 6 year old son. By Lucy Catherine.
