Dear Liar
An adaptation by Jerome Kilty of the correspondence of Bernard Shaw and Mrs Patrick Campbell

A delightful, funny, and moving dramatization of the words that flowed between Shaw and ‘Mrs Pat’, the acclaimed stage actress. Shaw was inspired to write the role of Eliza Doolittle for Mrs Pat, so you can expect more than a nod to Pygmalion.

Tuesday 1 – Saturday 5 May at The Castle Theatre, Wellingborough at 7-45pm
Tickets £10 concessions £9 Tuesdays)
