Multi-award winning Mikron Theatre Company present Raising Agents, celebrating 100 years of the Women's Institute.
Bunnington WI is a bit down-at-heel.
Dwindling membership means they can barely afford the hall, let alone a decent speaker. So when a PR guru becomes a member, the women are glad of new blood.
The milk of WI kindness begins to sour when she re-brands them the Bunnington Bunnies. They’re hopping.
With stakes higher than a five tiered cake stand, a battle ensues for the very soul of Bunnington, perhaps the WI itself!
On the threshold of one century into the next, this tale of hobbyists and lobbyists asks how much we should know our past or how much we should let go of it.
Above all else, like the WI itself, Raising Agents is a story of friendship.
