Dame Ethel Smyth, composer, writer and activist. This tells her story, in her own words and compositions. 

Performed by contralto Lucy Stevens and pianist Elizabeth Marcus.

“Not only is Stevens a terrific actor, she is also an exceptional contralto, with a wonderful warmth and clarity of tone… Smyth’s sense of humour shone through Stevens’ spirited performance, which was funny, touching and uplifting in turn, a magnificent entertainment that I can barely recommend highly enough – A must see!”
