"Al Davison's entertaining and powerful performance culminates in his struggle to overcome "disability", the prejudice that surrounds it, and his mission to end a cycle of astonishing events in his family's history. His story spans 100 years from the suffragette movement, death, war, imprisonment, love and attempted murder."
