Mrs Beeton, My Sister

Alison Neil

Mrs Beeton, My Sister recalls the extraordinary life of Mrs Beeton. The eldest of 21 children and brought up in the Grand Stand at Epsom Race Course, Isabella Beeton fell for a publisher and joined his rackety life in journalism, culminating in her world-famous ‘Book of Household Management’.

Award-winning playwright Alison Neil (The Sixth Wife, The Just William Lady, Truly Yours, CB) provides a lively retelling of the entertaining and moving story of Isabella Beeton’s surprising life, seen through the life of her endearing sister, Bessie.
