Starring Lesley Garrett, Rhondda Rips it Up is a riotous romp through the life of Margaret Haig Thomas (Lady Rhondda), the Newport suffragette whose activities paved the way for women's rights in the personal, professional and political worlds.

Performed in a classic music hall style, with original songs inspired by suffragette slogans, this tongue-in-cheek production takes you on a whirlwind tour of the inspiring activist's mission. We're guided through the story by our very own MC (Lesley Garrett) as Lady Rhonnda (Madeleine Shaw) takes on politicians, peers and a post box, as she marches towards the House of Lords.
