Review:

Hurrah for Blue Stockings, a play that gets the boisterous Globe audience cheering for the cause of women's education and muttering darkly at those who oppose it; a play that unashamedly lectures its audience on the importance of the arts while examining the trials and tribulations of four brilliant, passionate young women who are desperate to become scientists. And hurrah for a play that places women's lives centre stage... It is tremendous fun, friendly in its feminism and it deserves to be popular. --Times Higher Educational Supplement

Jessica Swale's Blue Stockings could become the academic equivalent of Call the Midwife with its story of female students fighting for academic equality in the Cambridge of the late-19th century... Touching and entertaining, Swale tells the story with both wit and a hint of righteous indignation. --Telegraph

It's a meaty subject and Swale brings wit and intelligence to it... The play, which is feminist and political yet hardly tub-thumping, still has the power to absorb as it probes issues that remain pertinent today. --Evening Standard

Thoughtful and provocative... thoroughly researched and grippingly dramatised. --The Stage

Emotionally and politically charged... a lively and eye-opening piece about the battle for equality in education... One of the many pleasures of this play is that its heroines are intellectuals yet it's a crowd-pleaser too... Cracking... leaves you astonished at the prejudices these educational pioneers had to overcome... This is a vital period of British educational history... You certainly don't need to have been to Cambridge, or indeed any university, to engage with the theme of education as a cornerstone of freedom. --Guardian

But little do they anticipate the hurdles in their way: the distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide or the strength of the opposition, who will do anything to stop them.
