Caroline Bird

Published by Nick Hern Books

4 Male 3 Female

Forever on the right side of history, but on the wrong side of life, Labour MP Ellen Wilkinson is caught between revolutionary and parliamentary politics as she fights for a better world

Battling to save Jewish refugees in Nazi Germany

Campaigning for Britain to aid the fight against Franco's Fascists in Spain

Leading two hundred workers in the Jarrow Crusade against unemployment and poverty ... she pursues each cause with a passionate, reckless conviction

And yet - despite a life spent running into the likes of Albert Einstein and Ernest Hemingway, serving in Churchill's cabinet, having affairs with communist spies and government ministers - she still finds herself, somehow, on the outside looking in

Caroline Bird's play Red Ellen is the remarkable true story of an inspiring and brilliant woman

It was first produced by Northern Stage, Nottingham Playhouse and the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh in 2022
