“You are brave and together we are strong.” Lori, Wendy, Margaret and Heather have set up their own makeshift Women’s Liberation Movement meetings in the fight for equal pay. The women of the John Collier’s clothworking factory are standing on the cusp of a shining new decade but what lengths must they go to in order to unpick the rotten seams of a stiff-necked factory? Shake the City brings the forgotten clothworkers’ strikes of 1970 into stark relief. Developed by Leeds Playhouse, it is written and directed by Johnstone Creative Associate Millie Gaston with designs by Creative Associate Caitlin Mawhinney.
