No Surrender, the celebrated show about an unlikely suffragette, Lady Constance Lytton, who disguised herself as a poor woman because the police refused to arrest a lady - and then wrote the first book about prison from an inmate’s point of view, returns to Cambridge Junction.

No Surrender, the celebrated show about an unlikely suffragette, Lady Constance Lytton, who disguised herself as a poor woman because the police refused to arrest a lady - and then wrote the first book about prison from an inmate’s point of view, returns to Cambridge Junction.

The play was originally called Lady Connie and the Suffragettes but has been renamed with the suffragette’s slogan.

Saffron Walden actress Emma Spearing, plays Connie with Julia Stone playing the music and supporting characters.

How and why did a demure woman from the heart of the establishment became one of the bravest icons of the suffragette movement?

With a strong text drawn from Constance Lytton’s personal writings, No Surrender is a lively and stirring production. The play toured to great acclaim in 2016. Emma Spearing has a background in dance and her portrayal, alone on stage, of a woman being held down and force fed is a moving and balletic performance.

Sunday, October 14 at 7.30pm. A post show discussion take place immediately after the show.

Tickets, 14 (£10 concessions) from 01223 511511 or www.junction.co.uk/no-surrender
