Set in Girton College, Cambridge in 1896, this story follows the efforts of four exceptional female undergraduates as they petition for the right to obtain a formal degree from the university following the completion of their studies. You know, the kind their male counterparts all get. With a title that underscores the context in which these women found themselves – “blue stockings” is a derogatory term used to denote female intellectuals – this play explores issues that were central tenets of feminism in the late nineteenth century, including sexual autonomy, equal rights to education, political enfranchisement, and female bicycle-riding. Issues that are almost all still relevant today.
