This one-woman show presents the daring Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Nottinghamshire’s first travel writer and Europe’s first champion of smallpox inoculation.
Born in 1689, as the British Ambassador’s wife in Turkey she visited harems and wore the veil. Now, fifty-two years old in Turin, Italy, she awaits emotional satisfaction…
Written and performed by Georgina Lock (pictured).
