FINAL BOW: Suffragettes take over village hall for Abbots Langley theatre group’s latest show

 Published on: 7th September 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Abbots Langley Players (ALP) delighted audiences when they transformed the Henderson Hall into an Edwardian tea room for their latest production.

Tea with Mrs Pankhurst, directed by Simon Ash, tells the story of the relationship between the militant suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, played by Wendy Ash, and the non-violent suffragist Selina Cooper, played by Jane Adams.

The scenes depicted the two women at campaign rallies and meeting leading politicians in the years leading up to the First World War. The rest of the cast played multiple roles throughout as the action moved from the stage to the audience.

A spokesperson for the ALP said: “The play was dramatic and funny and much appreciated by the audiences. A special mention must be made of the ladies from Bedmond Women’s Institute who wore wonderful hats to take Tea with Mrs Pankhurst.”

The ALP are not resting on their laurels and work has already begun on their next production.

They will be performing a double bill of Murder in Little Grimley by David Tristram and Old Folk by Archie Wilson from November 16 to 18. Visit their website at for further details.
