1918, and some women in England have gained the right to vote. A few short weeks before the armistice, the shortage of cotton has brought a strange hush to Quarry Bank mill and the women who make their lives here. In the silence, their voices are suddenly loud: loud enough to be heard, even now, one hundred years on… Working with the National Trust archive, Beth Underdown presents Love makes as many, a new commission responding to the Lost Voices exhibition and supported by Trust New Art. These are ghost stories about love – and love stories about ghosts – which capture the voices of five women at Quarry Bank, and the echoes they leave behind.
Beth Underdown is the author of the hugely successful debut novel The Witchfinder’s Sister and lectures in Creative Writing at the Centre for New Writing.
This event is in partnership with the Manchester Literature Festival
