DTC were honoured to host stitcheduptheatre@gmail.com from Brighton during their visit to Wakefield this Spring.

They are basing a whole creative project around a Forgotten Woman of Wakefield~
Mary Francis Heaton.

The future holds an Opera written by the creative team, and hopefully more expressive embroidery workshops to highlight the life of a women imprisoned at Wakefield’s Women’s Asylum her whole adult life for pursuing monies owed to her by a vicar for his daughter’s piano tuition.
Many thanks to Red Gray, Luan Taylor, Zoe and embroidery artist Nicole Chui for spending the week in our city!
