The World Premiere of a New Musical Play

Music & Lyrics by Eamonn O’Dwyer

Book by Helen Watts

Directed by Paul Clarkson

Musical Director Pamela Rudge

Designed by Bronia Housman

Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management has been the trusty companion to generations of women and home-makers, offering advice on child care, animal husbandry and the management of servants as well as recipes galore.

The cherished Victorian values of cleanliness, thrift and hard work are all reflected in the book which many credit with helping shape the middle class identity of the age.

The play is the unexpected story behind the iconic figure that is Mrs Beeton and tells the tales of the many women she advised, supported and befriended.

This is a story of friendship, ambition, heartache, a strong marriage and a dash of plagiarism.

Recommended age: 12yrs+

I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
