Escaping The Storm

Escaping The Storm

Marie Stopes on the Isle of Portland

Dr Marie Stopes transformed how we think about sex. One of the 20th Century’s most controversial women, her strong views provided graphic understanding of the pleasure and consequence of sex. Vilified then by the Catholic Church, Marie Stopes still provokes today. But apart from her work, who was the real Marie Stopes?

Escaping the Storm finds Stopes on Portland; writing, exploring fossil forests, skinny-dipping, and interacting with the locals. Fascinating and formidable - Marie Stopes’ complex private world as controversial as her public one.

This first play about Marie Stopes marks 100 years from the publication of Married Love, selected by Melvyn Bragg as one of "12 Books that Changed the World".

For those who wish to stay there is an optional post-performance Q & A with the AsOne ensemble.
