Luckham: Plays

Claire Luckham

PaperBack (23 Dec 1996)

Please note this book can take up to 10 days to be dispatched.

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.
