Square Peg Productions introduce Elizabeth Blackwell: their 7th ʻUnsung Heroineʼ, 18th-century botanical illustrator and compiler of A Curious Herbal.
Following on from the success of their 2012 Scottish production tour, Square Peg are bringing a local audience an afternoon of
- play selections read by Scottish actors Kenny Blyth and Pauline Lockhart
- botanical painting and plant study experience
- insights into the fascinating life of Elizabeth Blackwell
- a talk by Anna Carlisle about the Blackwell phenomenon
- film footage from the 2012 production
- and tea and scones!
Sunday 11 August: there are two sessions to choose from: 12 noon or 4 pm.
All at the utterly lovely Land Farm, setting for our memorable production of 2007 and 2008: Secretly Pleased.
