HERSTORY.YORK. ON STAGE
All York women who have an interest in local history and would like to see the part women have played in the last 100 years are invited to come along to the HERStory AGM on Friday 31st May at St Clements Hall, Nunthorpe Road, YO23 1BW.
Doors open at 3:30pm for exhibition viewing and refreshments. (There will be cake) The event starts at 4pm and the business part will be very short.
The highlight of the afternoon will be a performance by York University’s Political Theatre Group. Herstory.York are delighted to present a talk and extracts from the ‘THE HERSTORY PROJECT’: three short plays written, designed and produced by (very talented!) theatre students at the University of York @TFTVHerstory based on the women of York as researched by the HERstory York Project
1) inVISIBLE:A team of researchers sets about trying to uncover the stories of a handful of women who shaped the future of York. A doctor, a headmistress and a conservationist. What are their stories?
2) After Words:An anthology of three women from York’s history. Nellie Hewitt, a workhouse nurse during WWI. Rosemary Christian Howard, a woman who pushed boundaries for the ordination of women priests. And Kate Atkinson, an author who beat the odds and pushed herself to become one of York’s prolific writers.
3) Women Walk into a Bar: A quirky, comical story about three York ‘change-makers’: a conductor, a landlady and a political activist. This musical play is determined to answer the primal question: what happens when three women walk into a bar?
