The Attic Players

In production


Power and Petticoats is a brand new piece of work conceived and created by members of the Attic Players, written and directed by our very own Melanie Davies.

Melanie says, "The piece grew out of my long held interest in women's struggle for the vote and how lucky I am to have the opportunity to fulfil my ambition with Attic Players. Power and Petticoats is full of energy and fizz.  It is a very entertaining show that shines a light on a time when so many people were questioning why half the population of Britain didn't have a vote. You will hear many voices from that time from kitchen maids to politicians, from the rich to the poor, from those with and those without power. We can't wait to get on that stage!"

The resulting play is an engaging, witty and inventive period drama woven around true stories of women's struggle for the vote.

Another date for your diary: On the 18th August 2018 we will be presenting a special pre-show film and poetry evening with wine and nibbles in the Cawdor Hall Atrium followed by a screening of the film Suffragette (12A - 2015 - starring Carey Mulligan, Anne-Marie Duff and Helena Bonham Carter) in the Attic Theatre. This evening promises to be very special: We'll be joined by Attic Patron Simone Mansell Broome, who will be reading a poem she was commissioned to write by the Players in response to Power and Petticoats.

The event will commence at 7:30pm in the Cawdor Hall Atrium (the many-windowed space in the clocktower building beneath the Attic Theatre). The screening of Suffragette will be at 8pm in the Attic Theatre.

Book tickets now for the pre-event film and poetry evening via our Ticketsource page, or by visiting Fair and Fabulous in Newcastle Emlyn.
