1913. Revolution stings the air. In an orchard, two women meet in secret. Their actions have divided them. Divided a nation. Split their cause in two. The two women are suffrage leaders and rebels; Emmeline Pankhurst and Millicent Fawcett. The Cause considers the impact that a lifetime of political campaigning has on an individual. Asking ‘how far would you go for what you believe in?’ and exploring the divide between the violent direct action of the suffragettes and the peaceful constitutional means of the suffragists. Marking the centenary year of the first votes for some women in 1918, this dynamic production has an original musical score and film animation, projected for thrilling visual effect.
