When the Cat's Away *SOLD OUT*
1914. Windows smashed. Women on the run. The militant campaign for the Vote is at its peak.
Helen, a former suffragette, returns to the quiet village of her youth and the charms of the Fernstead Players amateur dramatics.
But when a charismatic leader of the Actresses’ Franchise League swoops into Fernstead, a plan is hatched to spread the ‘advanced views’ of the ladies.
The village – and the lives of its women and men – will be forever changed.
This beguiling comedy drama is inspired by stories, songs and spirit of the women who won the right to vote a century ago.
