Details:The year is 1896. Girton College, Cambridge is the first college in Britain to admit women, and the Girton girls study ferociously to match their male peers grade for grade. Yet, when the men graduate, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking' - an unnatural, educated woman. They are denied degrees and go home unqualified and "unsuitable for marriage". In Jessica Swale's debut play, Blue Stockings, Tess Moffat and her fellow first years are determined to win the right to graduate, but they don't anticipate the hurdles in their way: the distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide, or the strength of the opposition, who will do anything to stop them. The play follows them over one tumultuous academic year, in their fight to change the future of education. This witty and thought-provoking play examines the rights of every woman -- to an education, to her own autonomy, and to ride a bicycle, all set against the larger backdrop of women's suffrage -- the young men beside them.
