The lyrics and narration for Sylvia were co-written by Kate Prince and Priya Parmar, and Josh Cohen and DJ Walde contributed to the original music. Famous theatrical performer Beverly Knight (Sister Act, The Drifters Girl), who previously appeared in the then work-in-progress production as Emmeline Pankhurst, will reprise her role. Sharon Rose of Hamilton and Jingle Jangle fame will accompany her and play the titular character. The pinnacle of Pankhurst's journey is explored in this masterwork of contemporary music, which also examines how her sacrifices affected her family and how important she was to the Suffragettes Movement. Sylvia is a dance, hip-hop, soul, and funk fusion that sheds new light on the crux of the fight for women's rights.


Set in the early to mid-1900s, the musical production follows the journey of Estelle Sylvia Pankhurst, the renowned English campaigner, and suffragist. Sylvia Pankhurst would not give up fighting for women's rights despite enduring a lifetime of torture, imprisonment, and violence. Sylvia established herself as a symbol of strength and hope during the suffragette campaign and went on to radically alter the lives of men and women all around the world. She was a legendary feminist, activist, socialist, pacifist, and rebel. Book Sylvia London tickets now to experience the life and times of this legendary figure at the West End.
