Somewhere in a small Northern town a woman walks into her constituency office and asks for help. Meanwhile, in Westminster a woman prepares to stand up and address the House...

 
There are 650 seats in the House of Commons, of these 208 are held by women.
 
Maiden Speeches is inspired by the challenges facing outspoken women everywhere. A new play about being bold, speaking out and not giving up.
 
Maiden Speeches was presented as a rehearsed reading at York Theatre Royal on Tues 13 March 2018 and at The Actor's Church, London, on Tues 20 March 2018.
