Escaping the Storm

Albion Stone are proud to sponsor AsOne (not for profit) theatre company on their latest project 'Escaping the Storm'.

The Dorset based theatre company was awarded an Arts Council grant to bring the story of Marie Stopes, a one-time Portland resident, to the stage.

Albion Stones contribution will help to support an associated community project getting students from Atlantic Academy at Southwell, Portland involved in conducting interviews and making filmed podcasts.

Marie Stopes was probably the most controversial woman of the twentieth century, vilified by the Catholic Church for her controversial views, she needed a retreat. Escaping the Storm finds Stopes on Portland between 1923-58.
