Madame Clapham Talk + The Strange Death of Corsetry

  • Kingston Theatre Hotel Kingston Square Hull, England United Kingdom (map)

Based on the life and times of Madame Clapham and her Haute Couture Dressmaking Salon on Kingston Square, we move from 1910 to 1920; long hair tied in a bun to the bob; gowns to frocks and women as accessories or servants to citizens with the vote. This piece will take you on a journey from before and after the first world war focusing on the mind sets and society of those affected.

"This play was excellent! It had you thinking of values of right and wrong. The difference in characters was brilliantly portrayed and the WW1 theme was clear throughout. The History Troupe are always thought-provoking and professional.’’ Steve Row.

This three day run of Madame Clapham's life is located in the very location of the said dress making salon. Kingston Theatre Hotel is a beautiful building that holds so much history!
