The topical Tricycle in London has commissioned 12 plays in response to the issue of women and the political system, looking at the historical angle and the current situation. Split into two evenings of four plays, ‘Then’ considers suffragettes, Queens and Greenham Common protesters, while ‘Now’ takes a look at current issues.

Meanwhile, the Tricycle cinema is hosting a season of films looking at the subject of women and power from an international perspective. (Sisters in Law, which follows two lawyers in a small Cameroon courtroom, is fantastic.)

There’s also an art show and series of special events.

What an amazing evening at the Tricycle last night. Are there any plans to bring this event to a larger audience?
