Directed and choreographed by Rhona Mitchell

This brand new play explores the life and work of inspirational Scottish suffragette and journalist, Caroline Phillips.
Born in Kintore, Aberdeenshire, Caroline was a true pioneer: honorary secretary of the Aberdeen branch of the Women’s Social and Political Union, and a journalist at a time when there were only 66 female journalists in the UK. Performed in English and Doric dialect by a cast this will be a fabulous celebration of local history and language.
Join us in this celebration of one of the shire’s unsung heroines, in a rousing, comical and musical exploration of womanhood, politics and the personal cost of both in the early 20th Century. Produced by Garidge Theatre
