The Government continues to ignore the burning question of female suffrage. Women up and down the country prepare to avoid and evade the census as a protest and challenge to authority. "No Vote, no Census!" is their battle cry.
Sunday 2 April 1911. Census Night. Suffragette Emily Davison is hiding in the crypt of Westminster Palace planning a daring act in Parliament, but with a heightened police presence, will she achieve her ambition before she's caught?
Based on a true event to celebrate the 2018 suffrage centenary.
Written and performed by Deborah Clair and Philippa Urquhart.
Directed by Dominique Gerrard.
The performance will be followed by a 30 minute Q & A session with the actors.
