The future of education is at stake! It’s 1896 and the women of Girton College are seeking the right to graduate from Cambridge. The students are faced daily with challenges and obstacles threatening to derail their quest for knowledge. First year Tess Moffat has a more difficult choice: pick love and an unfulfilled education, or fight for her place at school and commit to a lonely, difficult life. Times are changing but there’s hope for the twentieth-century.
This groundbreaking work by Jessica Swale, who notably directed the first play by a woman at Shakespeare’s Globe, earned her an Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright nomination in 2013.
