Dangerous Daughters

Overview

The lives and loves of Christabel, Sylvia and Adela Pankhurst, the three daughters of Emmeline Pankhurst, the figurehead of Britain’s radical Suffragette movement.
The Pankhursts were a family divided, a family often at war. Christabel dedicated her life to the cause and let nothing, not even the pursuit of love and happiness, stand in the way of women’s emancipation. By 1918 when the battle for women’s suffrage had finally been won, Sylvia was estranged from the Suffragettes and from her own mother and Christabel, and Adela, the youngest, had been banished by Christabel to Australia. The musical tells the stories of these three remarkable sisters set against the First World War and other great events of the time. The story culminates with the victory of the Suffragettes and the disintegration of the Pankhurst family.
