Princess Suffragette is a new play, I have written after London Grey and Green Theatre company did a call out for writers to tackle the the story of Sophia Duleep Singh, the first aristocrat of a diverse background to join the Suffragette movement and to fight for giving women the vote.
Working with London Grey and Green theatre to develop this ensemble driven piece has pushed myself as a theatre-maker to experiment with form and structure. As a result the demands of the piece, and the modes in which it needs to be told, attempts to capture the myriad of tragic yet vibrant events which took place in Sophia Duleep Singh’s life.
