In Jessica Swale's debut play, Blue Stockings, Tess Moffatt and her fellow first years are determined to win the right to graduate. 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.
'Love or Knowledge: which would you choose?'
'The only thing a woman can own is knowledge...
We must build our Trojan horse and infiltrate from the inside.' (Miss Welsh)
