Bloomsbury Academic, 01.04.1999 - 210 Seiten

Includes the plays Trafford Tanzi, The Dramatic Attitudes of Miss Fanny Kemble and The Seduction of Anne Boleyn
Trafford Tanzi began as a pub show in Liverpool. It has since been performed all over the world and translated into a dozen languages. It plays out the story of a young woman’s life in the arena of the wrestling ring and its feminist themes are dealt with in the outrageously entertaining style of a wrestling match. In The Dramatic Attitudes of Miss Fanny Kemble, Claire Luckham looks at both slavery and the nineteenth-century acting profession through the life of a remarkable woman. The Seduction of Anne Boleyn, recently performed at the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton, is a haunting love story and a study of power in human relationships.
