It's February 1918, and after several decades of protest and four years of bloody war, Parliament is poised to grant what the suffragettes have demanded and fought for - votes for all women. After years of direct action, arrest, imprisonment and force-feeding, it seems their time has come.
Wrong 'Un tells of the adventures of Annie Wilde, a Lancashire mill girl galvanised by a rousing mixture of injustice, conviction, self-doubt and fear on her journey from schoolroom to prison cell and beyond, in a musical drama that draws on class, privilege, hope and disappointment in wartime England.
Wrong 'Un is produced by the critically-acclaimed Red Ladder Theatre Company, written by Boff Whalley and directed by Justin Audibert (previous associate of the RSC and winner of the prestigious Leverhulme Bursary).
