A one-woman show exploring the life of Charlotte Payne-Townshend, Irish heiress, suffrage supporter, philanthropist and Fabian. She met and married the famous playwright George Bernard Shaw when they were both in their early forties and the marriage lasted until her death.

 

This hour-long show explores her life through her diary entries and letters as well as those of GB Shaw, Beatrice Webb, T.E. Lawrence and Mrs Patrick Campbell. A most unconventional Irish love story, the story of Charlotte Payne-Townshend is underscored by Celtic harp.
