The Lady's Not For Burning

2 to 11 November 2006

England 1400: Jennett Jourdemayne lives alone, performs experiments, speaks French to her poodle and dines on Sundays with her peacock. Branded a witch by superstitious town folk, Jennet wants to live. Thomas Mendip, a soldier, found guilty of jaundice, misanthropy, suicidal tendencies and spreading gloom and despondency but not of the murders he confessed to, wants to be hanged.

Christopher Fry's dark romance was written in 1948 and is the one which made his name. It has been counted one of the greatest 100 plays of the 20th century.
