All of life's a wicked stage and love a dangerous
If Shakespeare had a sister...
In 18th century London the glamorous Drury Lane and Covent
Garden theatres were all the rage, beckoning every young
actor, actress, playwright, and performer with the lure of
the stage lights. But competition and back-biting between
theatre owners, patrons, actors, and writers left aspiring
playwrights with their work stolen, profits withheld, and
reputations on the line. For a female, things were harder
still, as the chances of a "petticoat playwright" getting
past the government censor was slim.
In this exciting and cutthroat world, a young woman with a
skill for writing and an ambition to see her work performed
could rise to glory, or could lose all in the blink of an eye...
In Ciji Ware's signature style, real-life characters of the
day create a backdrop for a portrait of a glittering era, a
love story, and a compelling glimpse into what life was like
for a strong and independent-minded woman in an
emphatically man's world.
