What's On, Display in Sidebar, September


Where better to enjoy the sensational true story of 18th century actress Letitia Sage than The Georgian Theatre Royal? Magnificent Mrs Sage brought va-va-voom to the balloon when she set out to be the first Englishwoman to fly in 1785.

With more hilarious twists than a hit farce, a Georgian playwright could not have given the real-life Mrs Sage balloon show a better plot.

Did the daredevil diva really start the Mile High Club? Join Sharon Wright, author of The Lost History of The Lady Aeronauts and actress Abigail Halley as Mrs Sage to find out!

Suitable for age 16+

This event is part of the Richmond Walking and Book Festival.

Tickets cost £15 (£7.50 for full-time students or those on benefits) and are available from The Georgian Theatre Royal Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.
