HOURGLASS: A SUFFRAGETTE'S STORY, follows Lady Caroline Braithwaite and her maidservant Kitty to the depths of despair brought on by merely being women in Edwardian England. As Lady Caroline grapples with this misfortune her daughter, Cordelia, tries desperately to undo the wrongs whilst trying not to follow in her mother’s footsteps. The tangled storyline, which is funny, tragic, tender and empowering, with many twists and turns, will keep you on the edge of your seat as the sand in the Hourglass trickles by.
