ESCAPING THE STORM
Theatres, Arts Centres, Festivals & Schools
Tel: 01305 835541
Dr Marie Stopes transformed how we think about sex forever. Hailed as one of the most controversial women of the 20th century, her strong views on sex and contraception provided women with a graphic understanding of the physiology, pleasure, and consequences of sex. Whilst her books were all vilified by the Catholic Church their relevance is still discussed today. Much is known about her work but who was the real Marie Stopes?
Escaping the Storm sees Stopes during her time at her rugged Island retreat of Portland. There she enjoys writing poetry, exploring the island’s rich Jurassic fossil forests, skinny dipping and mingling with the locals.
Fascinating, forceful, formidable, the complexity of Marie Stopes’ private world is as gripping as her public story.

Touring Again from April 2019 MARY ANNING’S FOSSIL DEPOT
(future bookings considered for an extended tour in libraries, schools, and arts centres)
It is said that Mary Anning, born in Lyme Regis in 1799, was a placid baby; then struck by lightning she became bright and talkative. Not only did little Mary survive, but at 11 years old she & her brother Joseph found the first complete Ichthyosaur fossil. Self-taught, Mary went on to be an inspiration, shaking the 19th Century world of science. ‘Mary Anning Fossil Depot’ is an, entertaining performance, packed-full of interactive fun, facts, & adventure on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. Mary, aided & abetted by her brother Joseph, looks back at an inspiring life led with a passion for hunting & understanding fossils; struggles with poverty & self-education. This special story is interwoven by a string of ‘Curios’ – small fossils which Mary & Joseph introduce for the children to handle: ‘Snakestones’, ‘Devil’s Toenails’, ‘Ladies Fingers’ – each sold for a penny by the Anning’s to put food on the table. Mary Anning went on to prove with desire and determination, whoever you are, you can achieve great things.
