Description

Vibrant, inspiring play about Eglantyne Jebb; visionary, passionate, humanitarian, human rights activist and founder of Save the Children. 'Outstanding performance, a great show' (TheReviewsHub.com). 'Written with wit and buoyancy' (Theatreview.org.nz). 'Light champagne brilliance of presentation, enlightening and moving' (FringeReview.co.uk). In 1919, challenging the British government's lack of response to the devastating famine in post-war Europe, Eglantyne and her sister Dorothy founded Save the Children. From idyllic Shropshire, Eglantyne went onto Oxford University, Cambridge social work, Bloomsbury parties, heartbreaks, suffrage rallies, spiritualism, the Balkans, an arrest in Trafalgar Square and pioneering children's rights. Written and performed by Anne Chamberlain. www.eglantynetheshow.com
