Angry Birds
By Dougal Irvine

A new punk musical for the politically cynical. In a failing school a class learn about a group of ‘posh birds’ who won the vote for women 100 years ago. But as they grasp the story they realise that the battle is still raging and they are on the front line. Suffragette? It’s not over yet!

100 years, to the day, that women were first able to vote in the general election, third year Edge Hill musical theatre students will be performing this wonderful new British musical as part of the show’s national premiere. Having worked with writer Dougal Irvine on the official soundtrack for Angry Birds back in May it is now our pleasure to bring this powerful piece to vivid life as part of the university’s Wonder Women programme. To perform this musical within an institution with such strong links to women’s suffrage is a real privilege.

Tickets: £5 / Free for EHU Students
