Credits:

Unique performance at the House of Commons of TO FREEDOM'S CAUSE: "Kate Willoughby plays the central role of Emily Davison, and clearly holds her in high regard, but does not allow her passion to interfere with her portrayal. She builds a complex character, torn between her somewhat renegade commitment to her cause and life’s many pressures." (A Younger Theatre).
