Blue Stockings

by Jessica Swale


8th - 13th June 2015


Girton College, Cambridge, 1896: Elizabeth Welsh is preparing for battle. Girton is the first college in Britain to accept women.


Whilst the men graduate, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking', an unnatural, educated woman, considered both unquallified and unmariageable by an unforgiving society.


Principal Welsh is determined to win the girls' right to graduate, whatever the cost!


'Blue Stockings' premiered at Shakespeare's Globe in August 2013.
