Elizabeth Kuti

Published by Nick Hern Books

A play about love, lust, prostitution and slavery ...

A devout Quaker, her wealthy husband, a freed American slave and her emancipator come together in 1840s Dublin

As they interact, each is revealed to be rather less high-minded than they would like to be thought...

'Marvellous ... an intelligent and affecting new piece' ~ Sunday Tribune

'A consistently intelligent and beautifully shaped play' Irish Times

'A moving play whose themes of charity, colonialism and morality resonate deeply' ~ Guardian
