Doomed Women by Joan Greening

June 2016

 

Presented by A Drunken Sailor.

Two shows: one evening of brilliant drama and entertainment.

TERROR: During the French Revolution, two courtesans, Du Barry and Dalrymple Elliot, spend the night together in prison awaiting the guillotine and hoping for a last minute reprieve. Will they find a way to escape the chop?

“Always an entertaining play – like Horrible Histories, it’s history with the horrible bits left in.“ Tychy.wordpress

ROSSETTI’S WOMEN: Three of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s lovers: the prostitute Fanny Cornforth, Lizzie Siddal, and Jane, wife of his best friend, William Morris, fight each other to prove whom he loved best.

“Clever, entertaining and well-executed…” **** Broadway Baby
