The one who threw herself under the horse
Emily Wilding Davison
In the centenary of her death at the Derby in June 1913, this iconic but enigmatic suffragette’s life is movingly portrayed by Elizabeth Crarer.
Set in the context of the struggle for women to have the vote in the first half of the twentieth century, Emily resonates with questions that still challenge the world today: repression of public protest, militancy, torture, women’s rights and self-sacrifice. Yet at the heart of this play is a real woman with her own hopes, beliefs and frustrations.
