Featuring a piano, a synth, two microphones, a shaky egg and 14 original songs, follow Lizzie Siddal as she takes you from being discovered by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood to being exhumed by her husband, the great artist Dante Rossetti.

Famous as a model and muse but an artist and poet in her own right, Lizzie Siddal led a ‘tragic life’.

She’s done being tragic.

A cabaret about love, art and legacy. Who really suffers for our great art?

‘At only an hour long, this bare-bones cabaret has profound things to say about biography, desire, illness and art. It is extraordinary.’
★★★★★, The Stage
