“A brilliant, tightly crafted piece of writing, full of belly-laughs but with an undercurrent that chills”.

A new farce from StraightUp Productions.
IN 1918 WOMEN GOT THE VOTE.
IN 2018 THIS LOT LOST THE PLOT.
Writer-director Helena Pickford has timed her magnum opus Suff'ring to coincide with the 100th anniversary of women gaining the vote. The hype is huge, the press are primed.
But…with fifteen minutes to go, the props have gone missing, the costumes are nowhere to be found and nearly all of the cast are halfway across London. On the other side of the curtain the theatre glitterati await Pickford's tour de force with baited breath…
"A funny and cleverly conceived production."
