The Milliner and the Weaver
Henrietta from Belfast and Elspeth from Dublin are unlikely comrades. The Suffragette movement binds them together, but as the question of Home Rule divides Ireland, will national politics tear them apart?
Marie Jones's short play The Milliner and the Weaver was first performed at the Tricycle Theatre, London, as part of the Women, Power and Politics season in June 2010.
It is also available in the collection Women, Power and Politics: Then.
