20190409: Tuesday 9th April: Louise Jordan: The Hard Way
A special event at the St Barnabas Centre, Mill Road, Cambridge in association with the Mill Road History Society
A one-woman performance of live music and theatre by acclaimed singer and songwriter Louise Jordan, charting the rise of working-class suffragette Hannah Mitchell from a remote hilltop farm in the Derbyshire moorlands to Manchester city magistrate. A self-taught, self-made woman, Hannah leaves home aged 14, exchanging one exploitative situation for another. In 1906 Hannah finds herself face to face with Winston Churchill at a public meeting before spending time in Strangeways prison. This show explores one woman’s determination to take power and improve life for those around her.
