The Cause: An Overture of Rebellion & Revolt


  1. Revolution stings the air.

In an orchard two women meet in secret.  Their actions have divided them.  Divided a nation.  Split their cause in two.

What happens when the two women are suffrage leaders; Emmeline Pankhurst and Millicent Fawcett?

The Cause considers the impact of a lifetime of political campaigning on an individual.  Asking how far would you go for what you believe in?

The Cause marks the centenary year of the first votes for some women in 1918.  This dynamic production has an original musical score and film animation projected for thrilling visual effect.

Supported by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring programme, Exeter City Council, Foyle Foundation, Fawcett Devon.

As featured on BBC Breakfast this morning, The Cause is touring to inform and celebrate the unveiling of the statue of in Parliment Square of Millicent Fawcett
