The Lost Letters of a Victorian Lady

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Michelle Read 

  • Synopsis

    Edith Lampton, the Victorian lady of the title, is an extremely naive, guileless character who, through no choice of her own, becomes embroiled in an international drug smuggling cartel, headed by the notorious Vicar of Marmsey. Brought up in the Victorian ideal of womanhood, Edith is ill-prepared for the bizarre adventure she is drawn into, inhabited by such strange characters as Maverick, the cowboy with the heart of gold and Master Kelly, the Irish intellectual and rebel sympathiser with a penchant for a good sing song.
