AN AMAZON STEPT OUT
An Amazon Stept Out is a one-off evening with one of history’s unsung heroes: the pioneering rebel, Mary Wollstonecraft. Anita Rani and Jude Kelly and a star-studded cast will bring to life the inspirational story of the ‘original suffragette.’
Wollstonecraft was an Enlightenment icon and human rights champion. She reported from the front lines of Revolutionary Paris, and travelled to Scandinavia in search of lost silver, toddler in tow. Why were her life and legacy considered so dangerous? This unique production is your chance to experience her world-changing words as they’ve never been heard before.
An Amazon Stept Out is written by Bee Rowlatt, directed by Honor Borwick with musical contributions assembled by Harriet Houghton Slade.
