Stand with the extraordinary women of Harehills – through Northern wit, pain & triumphs – to Shake The City, Millie Gaston’s play based on the Clothworkers Strikes in Leeds, 1970.
Lori, Wendy, Margaret and Heather have set up their own makeshift Women’s Liberation Movement meetings in the fight for equal pay. What will it take to make a stiff-necked factory listen?
Written 50 years on from the forgotten strike, listen to the unheard voices of brilliant Northern women and a heartbeat of stomping Northern Soul floor fillers.
From an exciting Northern creative team and cast, Shake The City embodies female friendship, empowerment and grit. Be immersed into Leeds on the cusp of a shining new decade. This will be the world premiere of Shake The City!
Greenwich Theatre, Crooms Hill, London SE10 8ES from 26th – 28th April. Time: 7.30pm. Admission: £18, £15.
