15 Oct Joss and Alec in original Suffragette plays
Joss Wyre and Alec Bennie perform in two one act comedies by Gertrude E. Jennings. Five Birds in a Cage and The New Poor receive the first professional production for a century by Optik Theatre, in celebration of the life and writing of this influential, sadly forgotten playwright. The super rich, a housing crisis, love and low pay; these scripts provide a remarkable parallel to our lives today.
Performances run from 13-17 October at SS Phillip and James Church, Whitton, Surrey. www.gertrudejennings.com
