Event: Louise Jordan – The Hard Way
Tuesday, 9 April , 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
A one-woman performance of live music and theatre by acclaimed singer and songwriter Louise Jordan, charting the rise of working-class suffragette Hannah Mitchell from a remote hilltop farm in the Derbyshire moorlands to Manchester city magistrate. A self-taught, self-made woman, Hannah leaves home aged 14, exchanging one exploitative situation for another. In 1906 Hannah finds herself face to face with Winston Churchill at a public meeting before spending time in Strangeways prison. This show explores one woman’s determination to take power and improve life for those around her.
