Other Lives Productions has engaged two professionally trained, Beverley actors, Jessica Duffield and Annie Kirkman, to perform the delightfully wicked story of the widowed, husband-seeking heroine, Lady Susan.
When Catherine Vernon receives an open-ended visit from the infamous widow of her late brother-in-law, the effect of Lady Susan’s manipulative charms threatens the tranquillity of Catherine’s family.
Sue Parr says;
“Lady Susan, a character flawed by arrogance and self-absorption, considers knowledge of the Arts as merely a means to secure a husband. Based on deceit, child exploitation and jealously, the novel discreetly comments on the importance of education for women in Georgian society .”
The show’s director, Ellie Claughton , said;
“I am extremely excited to be involved in the Beverley Georgian Festival and a production on my home turf and hope Lady Susan will reflect the vast and fascinating history of the Georgian era; a period which is close to the heart of our town.”
