The Working Class Movement Library is delighted to host a performance of 'Miss Nobodies - A Play About Lancashire Women; Fiesty, Fierce...and Never Forgotten' by Black Liver Productions.

It is a funny, uplifting play about a little shop in a little town and the larger-than-life women that pass through it from 1919 to the present day. Mixing storytelling with sketches, songs and poetry, Ruth Cockburn and Keith Carter take you through 100 years of retail therapy and the lives of the women in each decade.

Inspired by the story of working class writer and activist Ethel Carnie Holdsworth, award winning writer, comedian and performer Ruth Cockburn began to explore the lost voices of working class women in Lancashire. Ruth collected sound bites, long form stories and images from women all over Lancashire and they have been woven into the show and accompanying book.

Tickets cost £8.

Light refreshments will be available.
