Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale


Jessica Swale's moving, comical and empowering play tells the story of four young women fighting for education and self-determination at Cambridge University in 1896.

Set in Girton College, the first college to accept women in Britain, the play follows the four heroines as they study ferociously determined to match their male peers grade for grade, but little do they anticipate the obstacles in their path.

The play is a collaboration between Qatar Museums, Mockingbird Performing Arts Academy at Doha College and The Doha Players community theatre group.
