    Part play and part guided tour, CauseWay tells the story of two suffragettes who cycled from Glasgow to Alloway in 1914 intent on blowing up Burns Cottage. Weaving the words of Robert Burns with performance, storytelling and live music, the performance questions the links between the work of Burns and the suffragettes’ cause, whilst also exploring women’s rights across the world today.
    The performance will take place partly outside and will travel between Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and Burns Cottage.
