Roar Creative Productions present
by Megan Toogood & Stevie Cooke
Three thirty-minute plays create a unique evening of theatre that explores a century of women’s suffrage. From explosive munitions factories in world war one to the flour-bombs of the 1970 Miss World contest, to the challenges faced by young women today, 100 Years is a riotous, heartfelt journey through the century since women were first trusted with a tiny pencil and the privacy of the polling booth.
Come and support a brand new night of theatre, from Roar Creative Productions and London’s most exciting emerging artists.
With laughter, in anger, ROAR!
