Liverpool author, Carol Maginn (Daniel Taylor, Ruin), turns her sights to the 1830s and Derry woman Kitty Wilkinson.
Please note: The actual performance date is Thurs 25 Oct – not Wed 24 Oct – as outlined in the #LIF2018 brochure and some listings. We are extremely sorry for any confusion.
Commemorating the significant influence Kitty played in Liverpool by helping to turn the tide on an epidemic spreading through the city; cholera. Echoing many of the class and gentrification issues still at large today, Kitty’s indefatigable work to help the poor of Liverpool in the face of terrific adversity continues to show how migrants help their destination cities, sometimes in unimaginable ways.
This play takes place in the same space at Responding to Robert Tressell: A Panel, an intriguing set of short talks that look at the social conditions followings Kitty’s watershed moment. Why not book both?
