A young woman takes matters into her own hands to fight the abuse, jealousy and injustice of Edwardian London’s music halls.
The themes of the #MeToo movement resonate in this period drama, where young women were routinely abused and exploited in Edwardian London’s musical halls. However, the Edwardian era was also a pivotal time for women, with the rise of the suffragette movement and the emancipation of women in the workplace. So it was perhaps merely a matter of time before one young woman rallied her supporters and took on the all powerful theatre owners.
Taking inspiration from the real-life Music Hall Wars of 1907 and influenced by the stories of female theatrical agents, this story demonstrates that determination and courage can overcome tyranny and injustice.
