The Life of George Eliot - A Most Dangerous Woman

Looking forward to seeing this play next week at the Shakespeare Theatre of NJ. I photographed this wonderful graphic ad in a restaurant last week.
"This world premiere explores the extraordinary life of Mary Ann Evans — better known by her pen name George Eliot. An outcast living a socially unconventional life, Evans was forced to write under an assumed name, not only to escape having her work judged by virtue of her gender, but to avoid having it judged by virtue of her scandalous life. Ironically, her success as George Eliot only led her deeper and deeper into a world of secrets and deception."

The play will give new meaning to this incomplete set of books in my bedroom bookcase. I bought them long ago for their bindings and now I might even read them!

I agree with Karen...hoping you'll comment on the play.

I notice the lineup at the same theatre includes "Our Town". Hope you get to that one too.

Thank you Rosemary for pointing out the play and theater. We will be moving to the area next month and we are thrilled to see another theatre so close by. We'll be missing this one but look forward to your comments.
