Thu 30 May 2013

Written by by Mark Smith

This one-woman show, written and performed by Hannah Davies, serves as a poignant and fascinating companion piece to the currently touring Rutherford & Son

Githa

Written and performed by Hannah Davies

London, 1912. K.G.Sowerby’s play, Rutherford & Son, is an overnight hit. Katherine Githa Sowerby is hailed as one of the most important and masterly dramatists of her time. Her work has since been overlooked. Githa explores the woman behind the plays and tells her forgotten story.

With evocative sound design and music from the era, this is an arresting and exquisite one-woman show about a woman's remarkable impact on a man's world.

‘Hannah Davies tells the story of a writer who was a feminist icon with warmth and humour… a compelling exploration of both female oppression and what art can and should be.’ The Scotsman ★★★★
