CauseWay: The Story of the Alloway Suffragettes

Suffragette user

Saturday 10th, Sunday 11th and Monday 12th October

12pm and 2.30pm (60 minute performance)

CauseWay returns to the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum after a hugely successful run in 2014. Part play and part guided tour, Causeway tells the story of two suffragettes who cycled from Glasgow to Alloway in 1914 intent on blowing up Burns cottage. Weaving the words of Robert Burns with performance, storytelling and live music, the performance questions the links between the work of Burns and the suffragettes' cause.

This is a piece of walked theatre; performances will take place in and outdoors and will move between the museum and the cottage.

Written by Victoria Bianchi and directed by David Overend
