Dear Daughter

Posted by teeps on March 24, 2014

Casagua Productions present at Bolton Little Theatre


By John Waterhouse

7-12 April 2014

Dear Daughter is the dramatization of a true-life north Manchester story, set against the background of the First World War. The story premieres at Bolton Little Theatre from 7-12 April.

Dear Daughter is based on a memoir written by Flora Jewsbury, not long before her death in 1993 at the age of 89. It tells about a difficult adolescence in North Manchester before and during the First World War. Flora wrote the memoir for her daughter, Edith Lundy, on the condition that it would not be read until after her death. The memoir contains a moving account of a young girl who was placed with a childless couple at a very early age, only to end up becoming a servant for them, later being moved from one house to another, with no real family. The story is ultimately a triumph over adversity.
