On Her Their Lives Depend: Greater Manchester Women and the Great War
To commemorate the centenary of the First World War, Tandem Theatre delivered an exciting new theatre project for women from Greater Manchester.
Three women’s groups took part:
- Eve’s Space (Bolton).
- Salford Women’s Centre (Salford)
- Mustard Tree Women’s Drama Group (Manchester)
The three drama groups explored the theme of WWI and the impact it had on women. They focused on certain issues such as poverty, loss and the change of women’s status.
The women also learnt how the war affected their local area by visiting their local museum and receiving a guided tour.
- Eve’s Space will visit Bolton Museum and Art Gallery,
- Salford Women’s Centre will visit Salford Museum and Art Gallery and
- Mustard Tree Women’s Drama Group will visit Manchester Museum.
The women used the knowledge they learnt through the workshops and from the museum visits to create their own unique piece of theatre to perform. These performances were shown at their respective centres and at their local museums.
This has brought museums to life!
