Woman On Fire takes you into the fiery core of the UK militant suffrage movement.

Terrorist or impassioned freedom fighter? This dynamic solo-performance lets you decide.

The turbulent history of the suffragettes, told through the eyes and life of unsung suffragette Mrs Edith Rigby – mild-mannered doctor’s wife, with a secret identity – arsonist, bomber and militant suffragette. Woman on Fire sheds light on suffragette history and the mystery that is Edith Rigby.
