Causeway – A Play, A Pie and A Pint, OranMor 25 – 30 January, 2016
Mon, 25 January, 2016 — Sat, 30 January, 2016
By Victoria Bianchi | Directed By Debbie Hannon
Featuring Beth Marshall and Stephanie McGregor
CauseWay is based on a true story of Frances Parker and Ethel Moorhead, two suffragettes who, in 1914, cycled to the Robert Burns’ cottage armed with a mission and pipe bombs. From their first meeting to Ethel’s eventual incarceration, it explores the story of two women, and of one cause that divided a nation. Weaving the songs of Burns together with the politics of the suffragettes, CauseWay invites us to join with Frances and Ethel in their journey towards a fairer world and asks whether, over 100 years later, we’ve arrived at our destination.
