A year Chester Little Theatre discovered the relatively unknown story of the Suffragette Mary Phillips’ protest against the Prime Minister, Herbert Asquith, outside Chester Town Hall in 1912. To celebrate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act of 1918.

The play concerns Mary Phillips ‘flour-bombing’ the Prime Minister, Herbert Asquith, in Chester in 1912, while on his way from Ireland to visit Lord Lever. After considerable research, Jan has woven a fictional memory drama around the incident creating an array of characters whom she has imagined could have been present.
