The Following Years is based on the true and tragic events, which occurred during 1922-1923 and ended in the deaths of two men and a woman; the Thompson and Bywaters’ case. So outrageous and horrendous was the woman's execution that her case was discussed in parliament decades later. The ordeal she endured evokes disgust even today. The Following Years is a semi-fictional story about Edith Thompson’s family and how they dealt with the horror, guilt and shame of having a family member executed. It follows the life of Edith’s family concentrating on her sister, Avis.
