by Cicely Hamilton & Christopher St John

The Classic Suffragette Comedy performed by Holmside Productions

In March 2018 Arts Centre Washington played host to the first Durham & Sunderland One Act Festival, a Qualifying Round in the all England Theatre Festival. Seven groups, from around the area, took part, with the winners, Royalty Theatre Sunderland, going forward to the Northern Semi Final in Saltburn.

Next year’s festival will be held at the Arts Centre Washington

from 6th to 9th March 2019

We hope that even more groups will take part in 2019, with a chance to represent the region in the All England Theatre Festival. This promotional event will give you a chance to hear more about the festival, give us feedback and suggestions from the 2018 event, and watch a rare revival of Cicely Hamilton’s suffrage comedy, How the Vote Was Won, first performed in 1909

An amateur production
