Science pioneer play comes to Sidmouth
The award-winning As One Theatre company is visiting the Manor Pavilion Theatre with an exciting new play The Cabinet Maker’s Daughter.
The story focuses on Mary Anning, who was a fossil hunter who rocked a world of men, science and belief.
Artistic Director, Jane Mckell said: “This amazing, lowly born woman, relatively unrecognised, and prevented as a woman from entering the Royal Geological Society, was recently voted third amongst the top 10 international female scientists.”
Set in 1846 in Lyme Regis, Mary Anning embarks on a strange dream journey through a life where she challenged the world of men and shocked beliefs to the core. She is haunted by hallucinations of old friends, enemies and even the dinosaurs she spent her life out of the living rock.
Described as a spine-tingling story about life and death, frustration and achievement, sacrifice, love, dreams and memories of long, long ago.
