This one woman play, adapted for the online space, depicts the life of George Bernard Shaw’s overlooked wife, Charlotte Payne-Townshend.

The event is held online, 21 October, 8pm-9.30pm. You can book here.

Charlotte was a remarkable woman who was a wealthy Irish heiress as well as a suffrage supporter, philanthropist and Fabian. She met and married the famous playwright when they were both in their early forties; a marriage lasting until her death.

Explored through her diary entries and letters -as well as those of Shaw, Beatrice Webb, T.E. Lawrence and Mrs Patrick Campbell- this is an unconventional Irish love story, accompanied by Celtic harp.

This event will be recorded and shared online with subtitles within 48 hours.
