Sylvia vs The Fascists
1930s England. As the British government strikes bargains with Hitler and Mussolini the nation's own fascists are on the march. While the authorities turn a blind eye to the threat, one person is ready for battle. Sylvia Pankhurst. Feminist. Activist. Champion of Justice.
Sylvia vs the Fascists tells the story of Sylvia Pankhurst, who stood up against a British Establishment so afraid of revolution that it appeased the fascists on its own doorstep. A surreal, unconventional, and comic retelling of a tumultuous period in our recent history. The story of one woman's fight-back that's as relevant today as it was back in the day.
Written and Directed by Rob Johnston
Performed by Emma Laidlaw
"The range of ways in which writer Rob Johnston illuminates his characters and situations emphasises a beguiling talent."
