Seven Against Edinburgh

Victorian Edinburgh. Present day Edinburgh. What do the two have in common? Seven women who will stop at nothing to make change. But will Edinburgh stop them?

Taking the story of the first female students to be matriculated as undergraduates in any British University as inspiration, Seven Against Edinburgh is a brand new play with songs performed by a new young company of actors and musicians. Follow the members of up-and-coming band The Patriarchy Slayers as they discover the story of the inspirational women known as The Edinburgh Seven, and overcome challenges of their own.

Please note that this production is recommended for ages 12+. The show features intermittent strong language and a live band. Performances will not be socially-distanced and audience members will be required to wear a face covering, unless exempt.
