Bonnie Fechters – Songs and Stories of Hope and Resistance
Friday 9 March @ 7:30 pm
Portgordon Village Hall
Friday 9 March 2018
Bonnie Fechters is an inspiring collection of stories and songs about women’s activism and struggle throughout the world and over the centuries. Devised, performed and directed by Morna Burdon, the show journeys from the jute mills of Dundee to the Vietnam war, from the late 19th century Syrian refugees welcomed into the USA to a modern Scottish woman who rode horseback in Mongolia with her -year-old daughter to record the lives of women there.
Discover the Scottish women targeted as witches, hear tales of the girls who survived the Magdalene institutions for ‘fallen women’, explore the 1977 ‘Strikers in Saris’ protest and many more inspiring females who may never had been heard of but were there.
