The fast-moving and exhilarating story of Blue Stockings will be preformed by Stamford Shoestring Theatre from Tuesday to Saturday




A play that brings to life the struggle that women had to gain a degree in one of England’s foremost universities, can be seen at Stamford Arts Centre from Tuesday, December 3 to Saturday, December 7.

The large and talented cast from Stamford Shoestring Theatre will present the fast-moving and exhilarating story of Blue Stockings which should provide entertainment and food for thought in equal measure.
