Natalie Cutler: Not Yet Suffragette
A One Woman Show Written and Performed by Natalie Cutler
It premiered at last years brighton Fringe festival to 5 star reviews and a nomination for the Bobby award for best show at the fringe. Garnering support from the Womens Equlaity party and theatres up and down the country. Not Yet Suffragette is now going on an International Tour and will be arriving at the Oldham Coliseum in March 2017.
The show is an eclectic mix of Feminist Theatre and Stand Up Comedy surrounding how Not Far Women’s Rights have come since winning the Vote. Do women only have themselves to blame for 'breaking the internet' Kim Kardahsian style? Or should Nigel Farage head his own advice and 'Go sit in a corner' ?
The story begins on the front lines of WW1 with Flora Sands - the only British woman to have officially served as a solider in the First World War.
From this point the story moves forward through each decade, from the 1920’s though to present day. Documenting women’s struggles in each decade as they juggle the stereotypes thrown at them by society, with trying to make their own way in the world.
During Act 2 (present day), Not Yet Suffragette touches on the issues of Tampon Tax, Public Breast Feeding, Marriage, Child Birth and the Gender Pay Gap before concluding with a musical finale based around the true story of 17 women currently serving life in jail for misscarriage in El Salvador.
Not Yet Suffragette challenges what it means to be an unmarried, childless (and proud of it!) woman in today's world - whilst giving the audience an alternative perspective on this much debated issue that they don't see coming.
Time is of the essence in this absolutely faultless performance from EntreprenHER Productions Broadway Baby.
A Comedic feast with a political edge. Natalie Seduces the audience with her very clear and powerful piece. She dives in with issues women face in this modern day society Gazebo Theatre.
Natalie Cutler has created a high energy and extremely socially and politically relevant piece of theatre that deserves to be seen by a wider audience Chris Lawson Associate Director at the Oldham Coliseum
