Inspired by a trip to Arlington Court and the extraordinary life of its last incumbent, Rosalie Chichester, Helena Payne created her one-woman play ROSALIE which toured the South West in partnership with the National Trust.

"This was a virtuoso reimagining of a truly remarkable woman, which resonated with its local audience in a special way and rang a few contemporary bells. The National Trust's partnership with the Pleasure Dome Theatre in this and other productions is an imaginative outreach beneficial to all." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The West Somerset Free Press

ROSALIE is available to tour to theatres and village halls. If you are interested in programming the production please email
