The Disappearance of Dorothy Lawrence

Itís 1914. England is at war. The Suffragette movement is gaining strength.

Dorothy Lawrence, a young journalist with aspirations to become a war correspondent, takes to her bicycle to join the frontline in France. What happens next rocks the powers that be and shakes her life apart.

Dorothy Lawrence was never seen in public again.

100 years on a young woman screams out a Punk Prayer in an orthodox cathedral, and her censure triggers a storm of protest that rocks the world.

Vital Xposure investigates their remarkable stories, and how history repeats itself; exposing the ways Society deals with women who step out of line.

A cast of four with integrated British sign language interpretation and audio-visual elements leads the audience back in time to explore themes of inequality and power that still resonate today.
