- About this book
The innovative work of The Pioneer Players, a London-based theatre society founded in 1911 by Edith Craig, is explored here for the first time, drawing on original archive research and taking an interdisciplinary approach to women's involvement in theatre during the British women's suffrage movement. This book tests the claim that the Pioneer Players was a women's theatre and investigates in a literary context the Pioneer Players' relationship to the women's suffrage movement, to feminism and to women's writing.
