Dark Satanic
  • Edinburgh Fringe

England, 1823: the Industrial Revolution and a changing world. Helen works their farm alone while her husband toils in the factories of a newly industrialised Manchester. As the harsh winter bites, Helen realises it isn't only the world that's changing, it's her. Written by Rob Johnston, winner of The Kings Cross Award for New Writing (Einsteins Daughter) and performed by Emma Romy-Jones, recipient of The Stage Edinburgh Award for Excellence (Care Takers), Dark Satanic explores the challenges faced by 19th century working women as they successfully navigated a rapidly changing world run mostly by men.
