In 1914 the great "Woman Rebel" and campaigner for birth control Margaret Sanger had a relationship with eminent Fabian and sexual campaigner Havelock Ellis.

It was to shake his free-love marriage to Edith forever.

Using their letters and autobiographies, the play recreates that year and asks, can history ever tell the truth?
