As we celebrate International Women’s Day, we are pleased to announce that Richings Players will perform Jessica Swale’s inspiring play ‘Blue Stockings’ at the Girton150 Festival on Saturday 29 June 2019. Rooted in real events in and around Girton College, it will be the first time that this play has been performed on site, amid the Victorian buildings where the story unfolded!

Directed by Sophie Torrent, whose production received rave reviews last year, the play follows the challenges faced by women in education at the turn of the twentieth century.
