Description

Vibrant, inspiring play about Eglantyne Jebb, the visionary, courageous, passionate, human rights pioneer and founder of Save the Children. ‘Written with wit and buoyancy, delivered in fine style’ (Theatreview.org.nz). ‘Outstanding performance, engaging and endearing, a great show’ (TheReviewsHub.com). 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, follow Eglantyne to Oxford University, Cambridge social work, Bloomsbury, heartbreaks, suffrage rallies, spiritualism, the Balkans, arrest in Trafalgar Square and pioneering children’s rights. Written and performed by Anne Chamberlain, directed by KC Kelly.
