Mary Elizabeth Braddon‘s sensational 1862 novel, Lady Audley’s Secret, was first adapted for the stage in 1863. In 1930, Tyrone Guthrie [1900-1971] produced a version for the Cambridge Festival Theatre with Flora Robson as Lady Audley.
Ethel Léontine Gabain [1883-1950] was a British painter and printmaker. Born in France to a French father and Scottish mother, she was educated in England and studied art in London and Paris. Gabain was awarded the De Laszlo Silver Medal for this painting.
Flora Robson [1902-1984] was never a beauty, as she freely admitted, but she had that ‘little something extra’ that made her a powerful performer on stage and screen. She was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1960, having been awarded a CBE in 1952.
Elaine Showalter summed up the plot of Lady Audley’s Secret thus in 1982: “Braddon’s bigamous heroine deserts her child, pushes husband number one down a well, thinks about poisoning husband number two and sets fire to a hotel in which her other male acquaintances are residing.”

by Jack Monroe, bestselling author of 'A Girl Called Jack'
Realist, writer, reader, reviewer and rocker.
The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
