Description

Census night, 1911. Suffragette Emily Davison is hiding in a cleaning cupboard, in the crypt beneath the Palace of Westminster. Emily plans a daring and courageous act in Parliament for Monday morning, but with a greater police presence and security tighter than usual, will she achieve her ambition before she is caught and returned to prison? Written and performed by Deborah Clair and Philippa Urquhart to celebrate the 2018 suffrage centenary. Directed by Dominique Gerrard. A Necessary Woman has been performed in Parliament to rave reviews and was recently featured on BBC Woman's Hour with Jane Garvey.
