Gut Girls - SOLD OUT
Presented by Guildford School of Acting
The Gut Girls of Victorian London are a rowdy bunch – with language that would stagger a horse and muscles that could floor a man. They spend their days knee deep in blood and entrails in the freezing, contaminated gutting shed, lifting carcasses twice their size. But they earn in a week what a girl in service earns in a year. In the pubs and music halls of Deptford they are notorious for loud laughter, outrageous hats and wearing no knickers. No man would touch them with a barge pole.
Lady Helena, Duchess of Albany, with her terrified sidekick Prescilla Cuttle-Smythe, is on a mission to civilise them. But will her Girls Club improve the lot of the Gut Girls or are they better off left to their own business?
The young actors from GSA bring humour and energy to this funny, moving and vigorous celebration of women’s fighting spirit.
