The Ballad of Hannah Snell (aka The Female Warrior)
The Ballad of Hannah Snell tells the remarkable story of a female soldier who defied the norms of her time. Snell disguised herself as a man and pursued an eventful career as a soldier and marine in the 1740s, later becoming a celebrity of the age on the London stage. The performance is in collaboration with the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum (Royal Warwickshire) and connects Snell's story with the lives of modern female soldiers. Performances in Warwick town in May - dates tbc.
The final part of the Asylum Trilogy made with the Centres for the History of Medicine at the Universities of Warwick and Dublin; exploring approaches to mental health in prisons from 1850 to 2000, and the disastrous effects of solitary confinement at Pentonville and elsewhere, using research from Professor Hilary Marland's team.
We're also busy working on The Difference Engine which is being opened up to testing across the UK this year.
