THE LADY'S MAD
Thistledown Theatre, Midlands Tour: Holy Trinity, Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare's burial site); Corn Exchange, Wallingford; Hertford College Chapel, Oxford
Full-length original play set during the English civil war.
I645: a war of wits and wills unfolds between two extraordinary women on opposite sides of the English civil war. A story based on real events including new women's histories that came to light through my own research as a student of seventeenth century literature.
