Deeds Not Words


The story of remarkable Hebridean women in the struggle for equality and the vote.

Some of the untold stories of women’s suffrage are celebrated with songs and readings from ‘Deeds Not Words’, Rural Nations’ 2018 theatre production about suffrage in the Western Isles, produced by Muriel Ann MacLeod and written by Toria Banks.

From cause celebre court case to Serbian war theatre, the experiences are vivid and varied, and illustrated by songs from the original score from the production, performed by Josie Duncan and composer Mary Ann Kennedy.
