Performed in the Old Police Cells under Brighton's old Town Hall, Nourish took us on an unfettered journey into the imprisonment of Sylvia Pankhurst.

'Nourish' tells the story of two characters; Sylvia herself and a prison wardress. As well as exploring the experiences of these two individuals, 'Nourish' raises questions about state and individual responsibility, and the difference between the 'official line' and reality; questions which are are as relevant today as they were during the Suffragettes' struggles.
