In Memory of Leaves at Portobello Live

An uncompromising monologue about Love and Protest

“The world is burning. You say nothing but to ask me about the weather."

Framed by an unsettling love affair, In Memory of Leaves explores what happens to communities when they are moved from their homes. It is personal and bracing: a love note to neighbours and a revolutionary call to the world.

"She’s mesmerising to watch in action ... I must describe it as a triumph."  Culturised

Excerpt from the Onstage Blog review for Suffragette City, London Pavilion

Suffragette City is an immersive experience in which participants are taken back to 1913, and a recreated “Suffragette HQ”. During the hour-long production, participants become actively involved in two Suffragette-style missions. The production is situated in and around the historically-relevant Piccadilly Circus, and the London Pavilion.

Excerpt from Rev Stan's Theatre Blog review for Suffragette City, London Pavilion

I'm walking down Jermyn Street trying to look casual while being vigilant. I've got a package to post in my bag and if found with it I could get arrested - I'm a suffragette and this is about 'deeds not words'.

Keeping to the opposite pavement before double backing towards the post box, all seems clear so I deposit the parcel and head back to HQ via a different route, checking to see if I'm followed.


Excerpt from the review for Suffragette City, London Pavilion

"It is 100 years since the partial granting of the vote to women, and Suffragette City is here to remind us what life was like for women in those days. The London Pavilion that serves as The Women’s Social and Political Union’s (WSPU) headquarters for this project is historically important as it was a meeting place for the suffragettes and was the scene of several of Emmeline Pankhurst’s arrests."


Excerpt from the Mind the Blog review for Suffragette City, London Pavilion

"The entire company is admirably committed to their roles, be they Suffragettes (Ariane Barnes, Natasha Langridge & Eleonora Russo), Interrogating Officers (Edward Andrews, Ralph Bogard & Padraig Lynch) or the Arresting Officer (Canavan Connolly)."

"It’s definitely an experience to cherish and think over, as a reminder of how lucky we are to not have to fight for these basic rights. Terrifically performed, and something I thoroughly recommend you try for yourselves."

Excerpt from the Gasholder review for Suffragette City, London Pavilion

"It’s February 1912, and Lillian Ball – a working class dressmaker and mother-of-three from Tooting – has just received a letter from Emmeline Pankhurst. Having spent the last few years in the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU), Lillian is familiar with the suffrage movement, however, the morning’s post brought with it a significant change in stakes – she’d been called to take more militant steps in her pursuit of equality."

Venue: The London Pavilion, Piccadilly Circus
Dates: 8th to 25th March, 2018

This March we invite you to walk in the shoes of a Suffragette and experience what it was like for those campaigning for suffrage in London, before the partial grant of the vote to women in 1918.

Inspired by the extensive collections of The National Archives, we have re-created three spaces at the London Pavilion, in Piccadilly Circus, including a Suffragette headquarters, a prison and a tearoom.
