Talking about the news, Jamie Lambert and Eliza Jackson said: “We are thrilled to present the UK premiere of this exciting new song cycle celebrating some of the most wonderful women throughout history. To be able to celebrate and commemorate those who have fought the fight for equality in all forms before us, in such a fun and moving way, is an honour, and to have gathered this incredible group of women in one performance shows the passion and dedication that all involved possess for this incredibly important topic. Inspired by the emergence of the #MeToo movement, these stories of courage, strength and resilience are memorialised through music in the most special of ways.”
The show is set to be directed by Julie Atherton with musical direction by Ellie Verkerk and will feature an all-female band.
