Background


Cecily Hamilton was a successful actress, writer and campaigner for women's rights.


She is celebrated for writing the lyrics of the anthem for the Suffragette movement, 'The March of the Women.'


"Life, strife - these two are one,

Naught can ye win but by faith and daring."


A rare and daring revival of this gem of the Edwardian theatre.


Hamilton's work is as relevant today as it ever was.


Synopsis


What a difference a little money makes …


Long days, pitiful pay, and no pleasure.


Diana leads a dreary life as a shop-girl at Dobson's Emporium.


Until, that is, she is left a legacy of £300.


Rather than saving or investing it sensibly, she decides to blow it all on fine clothes and a holiday at the best hotel in Switzerland.


She finds herself in the Alps pursued by two men who are fascinated by her strength and audacity and, they presume, her wealth.
