    Girton College, 1896. Headstrong and brilliant, Tess Moffat arrives in Cambridge in pursuit of her academic studies, even though female students are denied the right to graduate. The new cohort of ‘blue stocking’ women face a tumultuous year of misogynistic professors, disgruntled male peers and a disapproving public. But even as they navigate this university steeped in tradition, they find themselves amongst a growing political movement calling for change, and a vote that would finally allow them to enter the world as graduates.

    Jessica Swale’s exceptional play is a heart-warming and humorous exploration of the rights for education, the cruelty of the class divide and women’s suffrage.
