100 years ago Constance Markievicz was the first woman elected to the British parliament. She was in prison. She had been a leader of the Dublin Easter Rising, but her pacifist sister, Eva Gore-Booth, was campaigning for her release. Wealthy young women from Sligo, they had turned their backs on convention. This "stunning and evocative" play tells the remarkable story of these Irish sisters through theatre, poetry, songs, music, dance and over 500 images. Constance married a Polish count, was an artist and ran a soup kitchen in the Dublin lock-out. Eva was a poet who campaigned for the rights of barmaids and other working women in northwest England with her lifelong partner, Esther Roper.
