Publication of the full text of Lady Mary Wroth’s play is especially welcome because it is 400 years since Edward Denny attacked her for publishing ‘an Idle book’ which he claimed had damaged his reputation. Undeterred by censorship such as this, we are staging and filming her play Love’s Victory on 27 September 2022 as part of an academic conference at Penshurst Place The Sidneys of Penshurst and Beyond: Contexts, Connections, Collaborations
We will edit the recording of the live performance in Baron’s Hall to make the production of Love’s Victory freely accessible to members of the public from this website.
Following the production and the conference, the FutureLearn course, ‘Penshurst Place and the Sidney Family of Writers’ will also be updated and re-run in Winter 2022. You can watch the trailer by following the link here
In its current phase, Shakespeare and His Sisters on Site concentrates on two different venues: Lancaster Castle and Penshurst Place, Kent and is working with two collaborative partners: the Duchy of Lancaster and Penshurst Place.
