Make More NoiseA Bristol Old Vic Young Company production
“You have to make more noise than anybody else,
You have to make yourself more obtrusive than anybody else,
You have to fill all the papers more than anybody else,
In fact, you have to see that they do not snow you under”
– Emmeline Pankhurst
February 2018 marked 100 years since the Representation of the People Act was passed in Britain, giving some women the right to vote.
In honour of this historic milestone, Bristol Old Vic Young Company present their love letter to the women and girls who fought and campaigned to get us to where we are today.
Exploring the stories of women’s suffrage, alongside experiences of being female today, Bristol Old Vic Young Company and Adult Company present Make More Noise, a play which celebrates just how far we have come, whilst protesting what still needs to be done.
In Our Hands
Before each performance of Make More Noise we will be screening a short film produced by Rife Magazine in partnership with Watershed and Bristol Women's Voice. Featuring a poem by Malaika Kegode, the film reflects the diverse experiences of young people and asks what women and girls are still fighting for.
Sam Thorp is our interpreter for the Signed performance on Sat 4 Aug at 2.30pm.
Clever, funny and slick
