:: Wednesday 5th October ::
October meeting of the Feminist Reading Group :: 6:30 - 9:30
You know you're onto something good when you're reading something that was banned- that's why this month we're reading Henrik Ibsen's classic play 'A Doll's House'. The play was regarded as being so scandalous in its portrayal of the breakdown of a marriage that not only was the ending changed in some performances, but it was completely banned in Britain. Come along and check out what all the fuss was about.
