Sylvia is directed and choreographed by Kate Prince and combines dance, hip hop, soul and funk in a show revolving around the power of the Suffragette movement. It has book by Prince and Priya Parmar, with music by Josh Cohen and DJ Walde.

Beverley Knight will portray revolutionary figure Emmeline Pankhurst, with Genesis Lynea as Sylvia Pankhurst, Carly Bawden as Clementine Churchill and Annie Kenney and Izuka Hoyle as Emily Davison.

The company will also include Delroy Atkinson as Winston Churchill, Verity Blyth as Adela Pankhurst, John Dagleish as Keir Hardie, Jade Hackett as Lady Jennie Churchill and Edith Garrud, with Todd Holdsworth as H G Wells and Silvio Corio.

Jaye Marshall is dance captain, with Tachia Newall as Lloyd George, Maria Omakinwa as Ada, Karl Queensborough as Harry Pankhurst, Ross Sands as George Bernard Shaw and Richard Pankhurst, Witney White as Christabel Pankhurst and Elliotte Williams-N’Dure as Flora Drummond.

Het loopt nog niet bepaald gesmeerd bij deze nieuwe musical. Te weinig tijd om de voorstelling ‘af’ te maken. En zo werd van de eerste preview een dress rehearsal gemaakt.  Een dress rehearsal die vervolgens werd afgebroken toen een van de acteurs ziek werd. Inmiddels is de premiere een week uitgesteld…
