AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Writer. Nurse. Daughter. Lover. Friend.

'Identity and loneliness plagued her life.

'A contemplative work on the life of Mollie Skinner, in her own words, Sparrow is a deeply personal and raw look at a woman caught between lives.

'Feminist theatre company Tempest Theatre brings us this visceral and uncompromising portrayal of Mollie through storytelling, letters, telegrams and music, set against a background of World War, personal grief and forbidden love.'
