About this event

This one-woman show presents 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...

Dr Georgina Lock has directed and acted for theatre and made short films. She designed the first scriptwriting programmes at Nottingham Trent University and taught them for fifteen years. Georgina now focuses on writing, particularly writing and historical research about creative women.
