ELLEN TERRY

TOO HUMAN TO BE CALLED DIVINE

26 - 27 APRIL 7.30PM


“Too human to be called divine” - Vita Sackville West


Ellen Terry was not only one of the greatest actresses of the 19th century, she was also one of the most remarkable women of her time. Born in 1847, she married three times, first to the pre-Raphaelite painter G.F. Watts when he was 47, she 16; the marriage lasted ten months only. Defying Victorian morality, she then began her liaison with Edward Godwin, to whom she bore two illegitimate children, Edward and Edith. After six years, Godwin left her, and she resumed her career on stage, endearing audiences. Eventually, she became Sir Henry Irving’s leading lady, playing opposite him in all of Shakespeare’s greatest roles, at the Lyceum Theatre, where she remained until 1902.

Eileen Page returns to Tara following her astonishing performance in 2018 in Eleanor of Aquitaine Mother of the Pride.

An audio recording of this performance, co-produced by Tara with UK Indie producer & publisher B7 MEDIA is now available to purchase - follow the link
