Fragments & Monuments wishes Mary Wollstonecraft a wonderful 260th birthday on April 27th, 2019

We are delighted to project our brand new Wollstonecraft Live! short, following the reading and performance at Newington Green Meeting House in 2018 at  A Celebration of Mary Wollstonecraft

Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) lived and worked on Newington Green, London now recognised as the birthplace of feminism. She meditated and prayed in Pew 19, Newington Green Meeting House.

 By installing and projecting our new short film  on the wall of St Pancras Old Church, we link Newington Green and St Pancras Old Church where Mary Wollstonecraft married William Godwin on March 29, 1797 and was buried soon after.

 Wollstonecraft Live!

Play by Kaethe fine

Music by Alastair Gavin

Directed by Anna Birch

Commissioned by Wollstonecraft Presents

Anna Birch is herself a transhistorical neighbour of Wollstonecraft having lived and worked at Newington Green for years!  She has celebrated the often-hidden achievements of Wollstonecraft since 2000. Through performance, film, outdoor screenings and book publishing and often internationally her company Fragments & Monuments continues to create a living monument to her legacy.

It was wonderful to be in such an atmospheric church, sitting in Mary’s pew. Marys words resonate as strongly today as they did when she wrote them. The phrase that stays with me most is when Mary said that she wanted love and she also wanted to earn her own living. In so many ways she’s such a modern woman! Audience member, 2018
