— The Wardrobe Theatre
A hidden history musical extravaganza about a Victorian housewife-come-cult leader and ultimate punk hero!
price: All tickets £10 - See event details


It’s 1859. Penny-farthings are everything. Big Ben is ringing out with British pride for the very first time and housewife Mary Ann is the new ‘Son’ of God…

Mrs Girling isn’t your everyday Victorian lady, she’s a booze-hocking, hat-making sinner… that is, until a fabulous man in an impressive pair of wings makes an appearance at the pub… a man by the name of… GOD!

Join exciting new company Run Like Stags to explore a forgotten piece of British feminist history – the tale of a working-class lass with a ‘winning voice’ and holy management, whose quest to save society from the oncoming apocalypse led to all sorts of cult-y business…

View Victorian Britain through a millennial lens and follow ‘Mother’ Mary’s journey from Ipswich underdog to game-changing punk hero. This rebellious semi-musical begs the big questions: What is the price of martyrdom? Can feminism and religion ever go hand in hand? … Is it really OK to wear a hat indoors?

Girl(ing) is the product of a year-long residency spent by Run Like Stags at the Theatre Royal Plymouth as their 2017/18 Lab Company. They continue to be supported by the theatre.

Age: 14+

See you there sinners!!

**** ‘... an hour of fast-paced, punked-up story-telling… irreverent but warm-hearted… all done with great confidence, originality and a smile.’ Cormac Richards, ReviewsGate

All tickets £10: http://thewardrobetheatre.com/livetheatre/girling/
