A play written by Ros Connelly; devised and directed by Kath Burlinson; devised and acted by Elizabeth Crarer

In the centenary of her death at the Derby in June 1913, the life of this iconic but enigmatic suffragette (a student here at Royal Holloway) 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, frustrations and deadpan sense of humour.

To book, please email events@rhul.ac.uk, supplying your name and a postal address to which tickets should be sent. Read more about the play.
