This stage adaptation of suffragette descendent Kate Pankhurst’s award-winning picture book is written by Chris Bush (Nine Lessons and Carols, Almeida Theatre) and songwriter Miranda Cooper (Girls Aloud, Sugababes), with music and orchestrations by Jennifer Decilveo (Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus).
Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World will be told through the eyes of inquisitive heroine Jade, played by Fayth Ifil, Kayleen Nguema, Éva-Marie Saffrey and Nielle Springer in rotation. As she breaks away from her class to take a peek behind the scenes at the not yet open Gallery of Greatness in her local museum, she is surprised to meet Frida Kahlo, Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Marie Curie and Emmeline Pankhurst to name just a few.
