The Woman Who Conceived The Pill

It’s 1918 and a woman who adores men is dreaming of “a pill taken like aspirin” to free women sexually and choose when to have children. But contraception is illegal in USA and science doesn’t have the knowledge. What’s a girl to do? Battle the establishment of course! And hire scientists! Oh and don’t forget to seduce men like HG Wells!

Protest, tragedy, laughter, love and pills entwine to craft a compelling solo show spanning Mrs Sanger’s extraordinary life. You will never forget her – she’s the woman who conceived the Pill.
