4s English Trip to Blue Stockings, Globe Theatre
Friday 12th July 2013
As a result of the generosity and valued support of QASPA, the English Department has been provided with a wonderful opportunity to take the 4s to the Globe Theatre to see the play ‘Blue Stockings,’ by Jessica Swale.
The highly acclaimed play, ‘Blue Stockings,’ based on the story of the difficulties that faced the first women to gain entry to Cambridge University in 1896, is a moving, comical and eye-opening story of four young women fighting for education against the larger backdrop of women’s suffrage. It should, therefore, be both an inspirational and thought-provoking experience for the girls.
