Can’t stop thinking about #OVSylvia The togetherness of that production was phenomenal and the joy it bought to the audience palpable. An array of voices, people, accents, passion… keep it pumping @oldvictheatre @york_jonah
Well the @oldvictheatre have knocked it out of the park again with #OVSylvia. Important, unapologetic, moving and full of heart and soul. Delighted to have caught it in its early stages @Chris_Mayo
A story so important, told so brilliantly; #OVSylvia @oldvictheatre . THIS IS WHAT THEATRE IS ABOUT @SophieJacob123
The short run of this much talked-about show ends this Saturday.
A brand new musical. 100 years after the first women in Britain got the vote. Be there at the beginning.
The Old Vic has a 200-year history of nurturing creativity and supporting new adventures and, in celebration of this major anniversary, we are proudly giving this new musical its first lease of life in collaboration with Sadler’s Wells, Kate Prince: The ZooNation Company and our co-commissioning partners, 14-18 NOW.
With her trademark combination of dance, hip hop, soul and funk, Kate Prince sheds new light on a remarkable story at the heart of the Suffragette movement.
Co-written by Kate Prince and Priya Parmar with original music by Josh Cohen and DJ Walde, SYLVIA celebrates the life of Sylvia Pankhurst, her pivotal role in the campaign for women’s rights and the price of the passion and politics that tore her family apart.
Supporting the Mayor’s #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign to celebrate the centenary of the first women winning the right to vote and tackle gender inequality in London.
On 4 March 2018 SYLVIA took to the stage at Trafalgar Square to welcome the 5,000 women and men who marched from the Houses of Parliament in support of gender equality.
VOICES OFF: TALKS AND DEBATES
An Equal Future: A panel discussion. Thu 20 Sep, 5pm, tickets £6.
SYLVIA is co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, with support from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, and from the Department for Culture Media and Sport.
