Jennie Lee reviews

Our show celebrating the life of Jennie Lee has been going down a storm.

Jennie became Westminster’s youngest MP in 1929 – so young that, as a woman, she couldn’t even vote for herself.

You can find out more about the show here. On the page there’s our lovely show trailer and, new for 2024, an integarted audio description trailer.

All Mikron performances in 2024 have integarted audio descrption.


“Loved Mikron’s performance of Jennie Lee ‘The Radical MP you’ve never heard of…’ at Nottingham Central Library tonight. Politics but with fun, songs and hats. Also love their vision “Theatre anywhere for everyone, by canal, river and road” – Jennie Lee would approve! 🌹”

Lilian Greenwood MP -Shadow Minister for Arts, Heritage and Civil Society


“The show was excellent, the young performers outstanding and the story they so skillfully told, through humour, music, song and dialogue was exceptional. We feel so lucky to have this opportunity to bring these performances to East Yorkshire!”

Sheron Gibbons, East Riding Mobile Library Service

Reflects and honours Jennie Lee’s unwavering commitment to the betterment of ordinary working people’s lives – and it does her proud.

A production that has to be up there with one of the best that Mikron has ever done


Directed with brisk efficiency and some impressive songs: A fine tribute to one of the Labour Party’s heroes
