“Tomorrow’s Great Pageant” is an Arts Council-funded project that re-imagines the iconic Suffrage play, “A Pageant of Great Women”, for a 21st Century non-binary context. DashNDem (which includes Goldsmiths Design lecturer Dash Macdonald) and Nicholas Mortimer (also a lecturer in our department) are producing the project in partnership with Bedford Creative Arts and The Place Bedford.

Are you interested in gender and freedom? Are you part of the LGBTQ+ community? Are you inspired by certain individuals or groups who deserve recognition? Are you interested in finding out how theatre can contribute to meaningful change?

“Tomorrow’s Great Pageant” is looking for participants to join the workshop process and help co-author the production. If you would like to get involved, please contact postworkerstheatre[@]gmail.com.

A launch event for the project will happen on 2 February 2019 at The Place in Bedford; more information and a full list of speakers can be found on the project website.
