WAM Theatre will present a staged reading of "Blue Stockings" by Jessica Swale at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 13, at No. Six Depot Roastery and Cafe, 6 Depot St. The reading will be followed by a talkback with the actors and director.

"Blue Stockings" is the first in WAM Theatre’s new Fresh Takes Play Reading series, which offers new and reimagined works that tell women’s stories.

Set in 1896 at Girton, the first college in Britain to admit women, "Blue Stockings" is a story about four young women fighting for education and self-determination against the backdrop of women’s suffrage.

There are only 25 tickets available for this reading. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling (800) 838-3006 or visiting http://wamfreshtakes.bpt.me.

Food and drink will be available for purchase at the cafe prior to the reading, which will begin in the gallery at 3 p.m.
