This new play, with music by contralto Lucy Stevens and pianist Elizabeth Marcus, weaves together Dame Ethel Smyth’s music with anecdotes from her confidants, her letters and her own writing.
Imprisoned with Mrs Pankhurst and the writer of the anthem for the suffrage movement The March of the Women, Smyth was a composer, writer and suffragette who was the living embodiment of the courage and passion with which Victorian women challenged the "male machine".
