Chopped Liver and Unions

The world is changed by the women you pushed too far

Suitable for Age 12 +

Who will remember you when you’re gone? What will they say about you? How will they spell your name? Is it Sara? Or Sarah? And what did you do anyway?


The East End of London has a long and proud history of rebellion. From the Matchgirls of 1888 to the Ford production line of 1968 the women of the East End fought for their rights. But who was Sara Wesker? What happened in 1928? Did a stitch in time really save the garment workers?

“Striking is the only power we have” is a recent quote from 2022. It’s certainly nothing new. In the East End the fire of change has been burning for over a century and its women have always known how to say “we deserve more; we deserve better”.


One of the most vocal of these women was Sara Wesker: communist, activist, and union leader, she sang on the picket lines, united the workers and fought at the Battle of Cable Street. We are excited to present this solo play with music that shines a light on this exceptional woman that history forgot.
