Deeds Not Words

I was at Northern Stage last night to see Deeds Not Words, a show commissioned to commemorate the 2018 centenary of (some) women getting the right to vote in the UK. It was a dance production, so not massively my thing: I’m not that informed about dance (though I’m always impressed by it, having no coordination myself) and I often find myself struggling to figure out what’s going on, or wishing there was a more obvious narrative.But it was an impressively hard-hitting piece about the indignities and damage women suffered in their struggle to gain the vote – and a reminder that it’s our duty not to squander those rights.
