1930s England.

As the British government strikes bargains with Hitler and Mussolini the nation’s own fascists are on the march. While the authorities turn a blind-eye to the threat, one person is ready for battle. Sylvia Pankhurst. Feminist. Activist. Champion of Justice.

Sylvia vs the Fascists tells the story of Sylvia Pankhurst, who stood up against a British Establishment so afraid of socialism that it appeased the fascists on its own doorstep. A surreal, unconventional, and comic retelling of a past we hear little about, but now seem close to repeating.

Written and directed by Rob Johnston, writer of The Riot Act, which was performed at The Pioneers Museum in May 2019.
