"One-person shows requires three things. Terrific subject. Good Writing. And a strong actor. Mrs. Kemble's tempest has all three in abundance." (Lancaster-Journal) Join the Victorian superstar as she mines Shakespeare's canon for everything from international romance to the Civil War. "Ridley is glorious...leaps from character to character...a laugh-out-loud show that rakes the heart." (Edinburgh Fringe Hairline-Magazine)
