Larks and Magic

Alison Neil

Alison Neil (enchanting performer, award-winning playwright and Highlights regular) tells the story of The Railway Children author Edith Nesbit in the latest of her entertaining one-woman shows about amazing women from history.

Quixotic, charming and maddening, Edith’s bohemian private life was jaw-dropping, even by modern standards. She knew everyone: G B Shaw, H G Wells, E M Forster, Noel Coward; was a founding member of the Fabian Society; and wrote a staggering quantity of books, short stories and poetry.

Larks and Magic tells the story of her struggle to keep her strange family above water, without losing her zest for life or sense of humour, and provides a dazzling glimpse into a tempestuous, joyful, brilliant and extraordinary life.

‘I was transported to another age and another time as you brought Nesbit alive for me’ Audience member.
