Music hall, theatre and drag king cabaret erupt as Modest brings Elizabeth Thompson: megastar of the Victorian art scene.

In 1874, Elizabeth stuns the Royal Academy with her painting Roll Call. Five years later, she falls two votes short of becoming the first woman elected to the academy.

In between, she must shoulder the hopes and dreams of women across the country while fighting for her place at a table full of top hats, ties and mutton chop beards.


Kiln Theatre, London
