Over the course of five days, three writers frantically craft (and act out all of the parts!) one of the most beloved screenplays of all times. Join us for this funny and affectionate comic romp that takes us behind the scenes of an iconic story.

What does it take to accomplish social change? This historical drama, which premiered at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London in 2013, follows the story of four women fighting for an education, set against the backdrop of the women’s suffrage movement. Set in 1896 at Cambridge University – the first college in Britain to admit women. But things still aren’t equal. The men graduate with degrees and prospects, but the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a “blue stocking” – a derogatory term for an educated woman. Follow the men and women of Cambridge University as they shatter prevailing traditions. Conflicts abound as generations, social classes, and genders clash.
