About

London 1913.

Beginning with the pivotal moment of Emily Davison at the Epsom Derby, Her Naked Skin navigates the story of the Suffragettes fight for a better future. Their personal sacrifice and militant action is met with incarceration and brutalism as Lenkiewicz’s story draws many parallels with democracy and protest today.

Through this setting, the human story of Lady Celia Cain and seamstress Eve Douglas unfolds, showing how female Suffrage transcended class and sexuality. Feeling trapped by social injustices and her marriage, Celia is drawn to Eve and together they spiral into a world of hope and chaos.

"Lenkiewicz shows us ordinary women doing extraordinary things." – The Telegraph
