Pension campaigners are returning to the stage with a play about their battle for justice.

Popular demand has prompted the Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) to perform Stung at West Studios Theatre, Chesterfield College, on November 11 at 3pm. The play, which premiered at the venue eight months ago, features the song GO WASPI WOMEN which was released as a single in September.

Angela Madden, who chairs the national WASPI campaign, said: “The play is frozen in time now, taking us up to 2021 when the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (PHSO) found in favour of the WASPI women confirming the Department of Work and Pensions did in fact ‘get it wrong’ when they failed to communicate State Pension Age changes to the women affected.

“The campaign goes on and the play is a good way of keeping our plight in the public eye.”

Stung, written by Lynn Ludditt, is directed by Carole Copeland and has original music by Rob Laughlin. Tickets cost £8 and £6, book online at
