Shakespeare's Lost Women

A brilliant revival of Shakespeare’s Lost Women by prolific writing partnership Gleadall & Mosse, to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday

Shakespeare’s Lost Women is a wonderfully touching and perceptive comedy about Deirdre Compton, an actress who has made a career playing luscious milkmaids, jesters and clowns while her mother plays Desdemona, Titania and Lady Macbeth. Unsurprisingly, they do not get on.

Shakespeare’s Lost Women premiered at Petersfield Shakespeare Festival before going on to several other sold-out performances. To introduce this new production, acclaimed Sussex writer Greg Mosse says:

‘The idea for Shakespeare’s Lost Women came to me while I was watching the wonderful but foolish Nurse in Romeo & Juliet. It’s amazing that she isn't even on stage at the end. Then I thought about Jailer’s Daughter in Two Noble Kinsmen who doesn’t even have a name. Then I saw the RSC’s Love’s Labour’s Lost. In the second half, one of the men says that the lovely Jaquenetta is pregnant and will marry Don Armado, a comic Spanish nobleman. I thought: “What does Jaquenetta have to say about this?” And that made me think about other Shakespearean women whose stories never really get closure …’

In this clever, funny script, all the characters Deirdre Compton plays have parallels in her own life, leading to an unexpected but warm-hearted climax. The production will be followed by a lively and entertaining post show discussion.
