Presented by The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh: 28 October – 14 November 2015
“I used to think that whenever I thought of you I was all lit up, like a candle. I was afraid people would notice.”
Written by Sarah Waters
Adapted by Laura Wade
Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Olivier Award 2014)
Itâ€™s 1887 and Nancy Astley sits in the audience at her local music hall: she doesnâ€™t know it yet, but the next act on the bill will change her life. Tonight she will fall in loveâ€¦ with the thrill of the stage and with Kitty Butler; a girl who wears trousers. Giddy with desire and hungry for experience, Nancy follows Kitty to London where unimaginable adventures await.
Acclaimed playwright Laura Wade (Posh,Â Royal Court & West End) brings Sarah Watersâ€™ audacious bestselling novel to The Lyceumâ€™s beautiful Victorian stage in an electrifying new adaptation, directed by Olivier award winner Lyndsey Turner (Chimerica,Â Almeida & West End).
