AsOne theatre company presents: Escaping the Storm – Marie Stopes on the Isle of Portland
 
The isolated communities of the Isle of Portland on the Dorset coast are shocked to discover the notorious sex campaigner Marie Stopes has bought the Higher Lighthouse.  She hopes it will be her refuge from the storms battering her on the mainland. A collision of cultures is inevitable. How will she change the Islanders’ ways of thinking and how will she be changed by Portland? 
 
This first play about Marie Stopes marks 100 years from the publication of Married Love, selected by Melvyn Bragg as one of "12 Books that Changed the World". An ensemble of four performers give life to this thought-provoking piece of storytelling by playwright/director Peter John Cooper. For those who wish to stay there is an optional post-performance Q & A with the AsOne ensemble.
