In THE HEART OF HIDDEN THINGS (produced by the fabulous Jo Wheeler) I explore the life and work of writer Charlotte Mew, born and bred in Bloomsbury, hugely admired by Hardy, Sassoon and Virginia Woolf, yet never a part of the infamous Bloomsbury set.
Mew’s dramatic monologue ‘The Farmer’s Bride’ caused a sensation in literary circles when it was published in 1912, dramatising the terrifying story of a young woman trapped in a powerless arranged marriage, who is literally locked away.
