Suffragette struggle brought to life

A year after the centenary of Emily Wilding Davison’s death under the hooves of the King’s horse at the Derby, this iconic but enigmatic suffragette’s life is movingly portrayed in a one-woman show at the Island Arts Centre on Sunday 30 March at 8pm.

Set in the context of women’s struggle for the vote, ‘Emily’ resonates with questions that still challenge the world today: repression of public protest, democracy, militancy, torture, women’s rights and self-sacrifice.

This is a new play by Ros Connelly, is devised and directed by Kath Burlinson and devised and acted by Elizabeth Crarer.
