From a remote farm in Derbyshire to Manchester city magistrate – The story of Hannah Mitchell.
The Hard Way is a one-woman show of storytelling with song by acclaimed musician and composer Louise Jordan. –
With two weeks formal schooling behind her and through her sheer force of character, Hannah escapes domestic drudgery to become a campaigner, speaker, writer, suffragette, councillor and finally a magistrate.
A self taught, self-made woman, Hannah left home aged 14, exchanging one exploitative situation for another. In 1906 she found herself face to face with Winston Churchill at a public meeting and spent time in Strangeways prison.
This show celebrates one woman’s determination to take power in the face of insurmountable barriers, motivated by a desire to improve life for those around her.
Suitability: Suitable for ages 14+
