I saw this play at The Globe in London and thought it was amazing. It details how women tried to get the right to graduate at university in 1897.
After seeing the play, I bought this just so I could read it all myself. I have to admit reading the play is not as good as seeing it but I would still highly recommend this.

I went to the performance of the ply at the Globe, but seeing and hearing was not good from where we were; so I was glad to be able to read the play and pick up ideas that i had missed in the production

HASH(0x9d88c840) out of 5 stars My New Favorites 19 April 2015
By Claudia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Phenomenal play! Absolutely my new favorite. I bought it for a class project on contemporary plays and fell in love. There are two great monologues for young women in this (Maeve's in Act I, Scene 10 and Tess's in Act II, Scene 10). I didn't realize that the author, Jessica Swale, also wrote one of my favorite Drama Games book until I was doing some research on her. I want to read more of her writing!

The only complaints I have about this play are that the scenes are broken into many, very small scenes, which can seem choppy, and that it requires such a large cast that it's impractical to perform at most student-run venues.
