In 1915, Mrs Barbour led 20,000 women in the rent strikes with bundles of washing, bread flour, saucepans and wooden spoons. 100 years later and an 87 year old woman sits alone in her dank tenement in Govan, reminiscing on a lifetime of grievances, battling her memories and reaching for an idea of a time which put all of us first. This new play by up-and-coming, award-winning playwright AJ Taudevin (Some Other Mother, Chalk Farm) incorporates workers songs, charting a personal history of sisterhood, solidarity and betrayal interwoven in a social history of women’s resistance in Glasgow.
