When women and girls get abused by the same men that hold the key to all their dreams - what light does this shine on the controversy surrounding a historically celebrated writer and his young female friends in the 19th century. Our piece explores this dynamic in a modern setting of our turbulent times.
The production team and director have been planning this production for months, we have a brilliant cast a interesting and relevant play, a two week run opening the newly renovated Landor Space in Clapham North. Now we just your help to add the finishing touches, making this show the incredible experience it should be!

We will also use it for marketing costs such as printing programmes and posters along with costumes, props and other essential parts of the production. All of this will contribute to heightening the impact of the final piece.
