They fought for the right to vote.
100 years on… how far would you go?
The Young Hot Bloods were a group of young women prepared to be on “danger duty” in the fight for women’s suffrage. Who are the Young Hot Bloods of today and should we be on their side?
Award-winning Longsight Theatre have gathered voices and stories from across East London - from activists to politicians, anti-feminists to intersectional-feminists, and school children to grandmas, asking; where are we now and how far would you go?.
Young Hot Bloods uniquely brings these voices together in a new headphone verbatim play, inspired by the centenary of the 1918 right for (some) women to vote, and based on the struggles of 2018.
In a hundred years from now will anyone be celebrating our victories? And can we even agree what we are fighting for? Is this generation as ‘woke’ as they think they are? Is this the beginning of a new era?
Young Hot Bloods is proudly supported by Walthamstow Council
and the Heritage Lottery Foundation.
