Blue Stockings is the empowering and surprising story of four young women fighting for their right to a university education in a world that assumed women belonged at home

First produced professionally at Shakespeare's Globe in 2013, and a sell-out success, it is now regularly performed by theatre groups in the UK and beyond, and is widely studied by Drama students

This Page to Stage Student Guide is written by the playwright - who also directed the first production at RADA - along with her assistant director Lois Jeary

It's packed with contextual information, scene-by-scene and character breakdowns

It also includes personal insights into the world of the play and the real lives that inspired it

From sound and music

To design and rehearsals

You'll also find notes from the original rehearsal process, extracts from working diaries, and interviews with key members of the creative team

Throughout, there are hints and tips on staging, and helpful games and exercises to bring the play to life on the stage and in the classroom
