Emily Wilding Davison: the one who threw herself under the horse

A new play from Cambridge Devised Theatre

12 June 2013

12 June 2013 Emily Wilding Davison 1913

Time 15:00 - 16:30

Duration 1 hours 30 minutes

Cost £7 adults, £5 concessions

A new play from Cambridge Devised Theatre about the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, which has been specially devised and written to coincide with the centenary commemorations of her death at the Derby in June 1913.

The play is set in the context of the struggle for women to have the vote in the first quarter of the 20th century, fitting with the People’s History Museum’s galleries that display ideas of democracy, reform, protest, power and politics, and Manchester’s vital role in the history of the suffragette movement.  The play will also address questions relevant to our own time about the nature of protest, risk, personal sacrifice, women’s education, fanaticism, torture and the role of the state.
