    Sylvia vs The Fascists

    Sylvia vs The Fascists

    1930s England. As the British government strikes bargains with Hitler and Mussolini the nation’s own fascists are on the march. While the authorities turn a blind-eye to the threat, one person is ready for battle. Sylvia Pankhurst. Feminist. Activist. Champion of Justice.

    Sylvia vs the Fascists tells the story of Sylvia Pankhurst, who stood up against a British Establishment so afraid of revolution that it appeased the fascists on its own doorstep. A surreal, unconventional, and comic retelling of a tumultuous period in our recent history. The story of one woman's fight-back that's as relevant today as it was back in the day.
