AGE OF AROUSAL

By Linda Griffiths
Wildly inspired by The Odd Women by George Gissing
Directed by Muriel Romanes
A co-production between Stellar Quines Theatre Company and the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh

This production opened at the Lyceum in Edinburgh in February 2010 before touring to venues around Scotland.

1885 – a time of great passion, great confusion. Virtue is barely holding down its petticoats. Women are bursting their corsets with unbridled desire.

Determined to make women rich, ex-militant suffragette Mary Barfoot and her devoted protégé and lover Rhoda enlist female students to master the new invention that will gain them freedom – the typewriter. Three spinster sisters are invited into the school to rescue them from poverty, setting in motion an odyssey of alcoholism, cross dressing and sexual revolution.
