“A touching insight into the passionate nature of a woman who battled & overcame prejudice in a male dominated world.”
Marion Cox, Dorset Echo, & Daily Echo Bournemouth & Poole
‘…powerful, thought provoking, with brilliant performances – every bit as good as the shows I have seen this week in London’
Eunice Kennedy, Crediton AC
It is 1846, and the little town of Lyme Regis, Dorset is battered by howling winter-gales. Dying and increasingly dependent on Laudanum, Mary Anning embarks on a strange dream journey through a life where she challenged the world of men and shook their beliefs to the core. She is haunted by hallucinations of old friends, enemies and even the dinosaurs she spent her life hacking out of the living rock. Into this world of dreams walks a man she never thought she would see again and attempts to find a resolution to their enigmatic relationship; a play about life and death; frustration and achievement; dreams and memories of long, long ago.
It is said that struck by lightning as a baby, 19th Century fossil hunter, Mary Anning was destined to be special; she went onto rock the world of men, science & belief. Dorset’s favourite AsOne Theatre is preparing to refresh this gripping story, touring nationally out of its county base on a national tour of both cities and towns.
We offer workshops for school’s attending performances; and post-show Q & A’s which audiences appreciate; our plays stimulate great debate.
“Very unusual & thought provoking – especially with projected images” Lighthouse, Poole audience member
