“Working from Home” Live Performance
Stroud Green Festival
Working from Home isn’t just a C21st lockdown phenomenon; it’s something women have been doing for centuries. In this light-hearted performance, a group of exceptional singer-actors take a side-ways look at the lives of some inspiring historic women composers, writers and scientists, revealing some unexpected stories of Working from Home.
Expect delightful folk song settings by IMOGEN HOLST; tall tales of foreign travel by MARY MAXWELL CAMPBELL (1812-1886); stirring anthems from ETHEL SMYTH (1858-1944) and ELIZA FLOWER (1803–1846); the poetry of C16th natural philosopher MARGARET CAVENDISH and C21st Scottish Gaelic Bard, SANDY NICDHÒMHNAILL JONES; Children’s Rounds by NICOLA LEFANU; a curious carcinological limerick, and a potpourri of musical fun, frolics and heartache by local composer FRANCES M LYNCH.
