Friday 4 May - 10.30am, 6pm & 8.15pm
Nora is a mother-of-two who dreams of a job as a secretary at a travel agency. The only problem is, she needs her husband's permission to even apply. Emboldened by his own promotion and payrise at the joinery, Hans is having none of it.
Frustrated by that and her father-in-law's patriarchal disapproval of everything that goes on in the family, Nora becomes intrigued by the stall in the village promoting women's voting rights. So when a meeting is called by the female elders asking for fundraising to oppose suffrage, she decided to take a stand – much to the consternation of many. However, Nora discovers she has fellow supporters and an action-plan is mooted – they will all go on strike. Left with only a casserole in the oven and washing instructions, Hans is dumbfounded as his wife departs "to get in touch with herself".
In German with English subtitles.
