Victorian Women in Bed
by Janet Goddard

So much goes on in bed and Charlotte Bell Nichols (nee Bronte), Florence Nightingale, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Mrs Emma Hardy are Victorian Women who are known for having taken their beds for a lengthy period for one reason or another. 

While the four short plays open our eyes to these unique women, they also allow us to review the position of women in a world largely dominated by and favouring men. Victorian Women was previously performed at Calder Bookshop and Theatre in January 2019 and due to very positive feedback, Calder Bookshop are pleased to be presenting it once again.
