In 1915, Mary Barbour led 20,000 women in Glasgow’s Rent Strikes. Mary Barbour’s Army fought against evictions from their homes with bundles of washing, cooking pots and wooden spoons. They won.

100 years on, an old woman sits in a sinking Govan tenement, battling her memories and reaching for an idea of a time which put all of us first. Mrs Barbour’s Daughters (**** The Herald, **** The Scotsman) by award-winning playwright AJ Taudevin (Some Other Mother, Chalk Farm) charts a family history of sisterhood and betrayal interwoven in a social history of women’s resistance incorporating worker, protest and popular songs from the last 100 years. The 2014 Oran Mor production, in association with the Traverse, played to sold out audiences. This year the play returns to Glasgow to join the city’s celebrations of the centenary of the Rent Strikes when the Clydeside blazed with political activism.
