Mrs Beeton Says

6th December 2018 - 13th December 2018

Price: £17.50

Concession: £12.50


THE WORLD PREMIERE OF A NEW MUSICAL PLAY

Music & Lyrics by Eamonn O’Dwyer

Book by Helen Watts

Directed by Paul Clarkson

 

Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management has been the trusty companion to generations of women and home-makers, offering advice on child care, animal husbandry and the management of servants as well as recipes galore.

The cherished Victorian values of cleanliness, thrift and hard work are all reflected in the book which many credit with helping shape the middle class identity of the age.

The play is the unexpected story behind the iconic figure that is Mrs Beeton and tells the tales of the many women she advised, supported and befriended.

This is a story of friendship, ambition, heartache, a strong marriage and a dash of plagiarism.

Tickets available through the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School Box Office.

Running time 1 hour 30 minutes (no interval)
