World premiere puts Alice’s story on stage

SUSTAINED Magic will be presenting and performing the new show Alice in a world premiere at Derby Theatre’s Studio from April 12 to 16.

In 1917, Derby-born Alice Wheeldon, socialist, suffragette and conscientious objector, was accused of plotting to murder Prime Minister David Lloyd George.

Held in Derby’s Guildhall prison cells, she went on to be tried at the Old Bailey.

The performances begin at 8pm and tickets are £10 (£8 concessions, £7 students). Call the box office on 01332 255800.
