Love and Duty
…with Cath Edwards
Tuesday 30th July, 2pm @ Allendale House (East Dorset Heritage Trust), Wimborne
A warm and sympathetic glimpse into the interlinked lives of gentlewomen and working women in the 18th century, drawing on contemporary letters, diaries, account books, folk tales and songs.
It follows the fortunes, secret longings and strivings for success of displaced farm girl Betty and Sarah, her employer. Finding their place amongst a vivid cast of characters, the two women pick their way through the social expectations of the time.
