Mary Anning - The Mad Woman of Lyme

— Alma Tavern and Theatre
Darwin said he stood on her shoulders.
price: £13.00


Darwin said he stood on her shoulders.

It is 1846, and the little town of Lyme Regis is battered by howling winter-gales. Dying and increasingly dependent on laudanum, fossil hunter, Mary Anning reflects on her life. By challenging the status quo whilst making remarkable strides in a male dominated scientific world, her work threatens to disprove the very foundations she was raised on. Haunted by hallucinations of friends, enemies and even the creatures she spent her life hacking out of the living rock, Anning tries to make sense of her existence in her last moments.

“A daring and provocative production"
Chris Aziz, audience member, on Escaping the Storm 2019

“Instructive, thought-provoking and enjoyable. Quite a combination!”
Minette Walters, Author, on Passion 2014

“A theatrical treasure of the future"
